They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.
I am sorry I have not been able to post anything over the past week. I have indeed seen the wonders of the Lord in the deep as I was helping a friend bring a 26-foot yacht from the south of England, back to Scotland.
It’s late in the season for such ‘carry ons’, and we had to spend two days in Scarborough while we waited for a northerly storm to abate. Being out on the sea in a small boat, being tossed about by the waves and being given a demonstration of the power of nature, helps me to realize how much more powerful our God is, who made all this and commands it.
As we started to make our way through The Wash, we witnessed the sea like a boiling pot and the force of the wind hit us like a brick wall, forcing us to reduce sail. It is a powerful reminder of this verse and that we totally rely on God when we venture onto the oceans of the world.
