The Ebb and Flow of Becoming

As I sit watching the rolling waves I imagine how powerful the under tow is and how it pulls us into another world. The rhythmic sounds of rolling waves, never ceasing but constantly ebbing and flowing. Another world unknown to us. The pattern of our relationship with the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. As a wave, His unfailing love, with its powerful under tow, pulls us in ever increasing degrees; closer and closer, higher and higher, longer and longer, wider and wider. Filling us with His presence, His power. Love - desiring His world.

Like a wave, He sets us free. We catch our breath. See His world! Differently. More clearly as He intends! The horizon continually shifts. The beauty of creation surrounds us. The lover of our soul is close to us. And then, the wave begins, pulling us closer; drawing, releasing, drawing, releasing. Higher and higher. Longer and longer. Wider and wider. Filling us with His presence. His power. Love - desiring His world!

Power filled. But sometimes gentle rolling waves, in their natural habitat. The rhythm created by the Father, the Son, and the Spirit; their natural habitat. Releasing for a moment. So, we can experience and anticipate, His under tow, pulling us closer. Releasing us! Freeing us! To be who he created us to be. Love - desiring His world!

"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:14-18
