bigger than the boogie man

i stand in awe of the wonder of this creation of god's every single day. the beach to me is the epitome of perfection...i love the beach.

for some reason, i hear god clearer at the beach. i see the wonder of god and all creation clearer at the beach. i take time to listen...and to see.

i have spent thousands of hours at the beach in my life...it's where my family always went on vacation as a kid...and it's where we take our kiddos now to spend time together.
the sunrise at the beach amazes me every day...how does that happen? i mean, i understand logistically how it happens, but seriously, how DOES that happen? god is so much bigger than i treat him sometimes. i mean, he stinking created...spoke it all in to creation. seriously...then, he breathed adam's first breath.

and every single second of every single day he is passionate about me.
why does it take me removing all the distractions to see and hear him more clearly? because i let the sound...the noise of the world get in my way...shame on me.

so my prayer today is to remember the sunrise...remember that my god is way, way more than i could ever understand...more than i could ever expect...and all i will ever need.
to quote the amazing and only junior asparagus..
"god is bigger than the boogie man...he's bigger than godzilla and the monsters on tv. oh, god is bigger than the boogie man and he's watching out for you and me."

What a lovely post and I love the quote from Veggie Tales. The girls haven't watched them in a long time.

This is why I look out the window when I first wake up, because I don't want to miss a moment of God's gift to us. Even though I don't live at the beach seeing the sun rise over the mountains is one of the best moments of my day.

Love this post!
