Of God, of Me and of the Sea

A Child and the Sea, originally uploaded by Shirley Buxton.

“The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:

While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:

When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:

Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

Proverbs 8: 22-30

    Kevin and Lily:

    It absolutely invigorates me when I consider that I am definitely in the plan of God. I am not an accident, nor is it by chance, I live. It is according to God’s Word. How utterly blessed we are.
