A Sure Thing


Surely on the seashore, you will always find steaming sand, shiny seashells, and sudden sunburn. Along the seashore, there is always water.  Waves splash and crash. Along the seashore, there are always people. People come to sit and sun, people come to walk and run. Just as surely as all the people leave each day, they will return once more. Just as surely as the tide leaves each day, it will return once more. In life, most people can’t find a lot of sure things so it is always nice to find one, even if it is as simple as the tide returning to the shore.  No matter how far the water goes from the shore, it can be assured the shore will always be there waiting on its return. The Creator of the sea and the shore is like that with all people. No matter how far we go, God is always waiting on us to return to Him. Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.  II Chronicles 30:9 for the LORD your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him. God is the sure thing for all people. He is always there.  May we run to Him and fill the warmth of His love.
