An ocean between

I just got back from vacation at the beach, so the song in my head this morning has particular meaning. I woke up with these words from He Is With Us by Love & The Outcome.

It might seem there’s an ocean in between
But He’s holding onto you and me

I cannot fathom how far it would be, or how devastating to my inmost part, to have an ocean between me and God. It just simply is not on my radar!!

BUT… If it seems like there’s an ocean between God and me, then I need to get in the boat! The boat that is Jesus Christ and His immeasurable love for me. If I am IN CHRIST, I won’t sink into the vast deep water, because He alone will carry me across!

There’s an old hymn I love that was made popular again by the group Selah a few years ago.

Oh the deep deep love of Jesus
Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free
Rolling as a mighty ocean
In it’s fullness over me
Underneath me
All around me
Is the current of Thy love
Leading onward
Leading forward
To Thy glorious rest above

Oceans. Two completely different perspectives. Praise God that “He is with us always. Always.”

Listen to He is With Us by Love & The Outcome

Listen to O The Deep, Deep Love of Jesus by Selah
