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
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.
