There is a simplicity and richness to life at the beach that reminds me of God's spirit. It can be felt in the pounding of the surf or the gentle breeze against the skin. It can be seen where the ocean meets the sky and colors of green change to turquoise and then to sky blue. The taste of the salt in the air. It can be felt in the sand between the toes as the waves roll lightly over the feet. There is a depth to experiencing these things that can easily be missed.
Going through life without God’s Spirit makes everything mundane and common. Going through life with God’s spirit brings vibrancy and abundance. The only difference is the spirit!
