One night on the beach

Night view from my balcony
Night view from my balcony

One night I was on the beach

It was a dream but I was in reality and You were speaking to my reality

You said, “I am sovereign

Look at the waves, my galloping horses of the sea

See how mighty they come but they cannot surpass Me

They cannot cross the line that I have set for them”

You said, “I am with you

Look at your footprints in the sand

Am I not carrying you?

I will not leave you nor forsake you”.

Then the waves of the sea came and washed the footprints away

And you said, “See the sands of time have washed away.

One moment your footprints are here the next they are gone.”

And I replied “Lord this is too much for me, too weighty to understand.”

Then you said “I am God!”

And as I looked out over the waves of the sea

I knew that everything would be alright with me

As long as He is alright with me

My footprints in the sand
My footprints in the sand

Ya’ll I’ve been thinking a lot about life after South Africa and how much I need to do or should be doing to prepare for next semester. But God is Sovereign! He knew I would be in South Africa in this moment in this time. God has everything under control. He’s working some things out in my mind and heart in regards to ministry. And honestly I’m afraid what the future will bring because it’s so uncertain. But, I have to choose to obey God not my fears. So come what may, waves of life. When it’s all said and done and my footprints in the sand are no more, as long as God is pleased with my life then that’s all that matters.

  1. Simply beautiful Marianna! Thank you for reminding us all what this earthly journey is all about. Each day is a choice and when we choose God to lead us, walk beside us, carry us, we see clearly it was never about our plans but His plans through us! 🙂

    Looking forward to seeing you,
