Catch a Wave #devotion #photography


girls in the sea

I tried to count the grains of sand

I got lost there were too many in my hand

I tried to count the hairs on her sweet little head

I made braids with ribbons instead

I made friends with a duck today

as I said “goodbye”, he flew away

I tried to touch a monarch butterfly

she became a rainbow in the sky

children join the waves in dance

hoping to catch a mermaid by chance

There is so much in our world that delights and inspires. I am in awe of a God who knows how many grains of sand are in the ocean and how many hairs are on a little one’s head. It isn’t just knowledge of facts – He knows our inner being and cares for us in the high and low times.

Psalm 139:17-18
“How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them,
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I am awake, I am still with you.”

1 John 3:1
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us,
that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!”

  1. I like how you “tag” the poem with biblical quotations. Both the poem and the Bible quotes are quite inspiring. Well done.
