This morning I I work early. I am currently in the Outer Banks North Carolina. I am searching for my next home well I take a summer assignment at the beach. The excitement in my heart is overwhelming and I've been unable to sleep more than a couple hours last several nights.
Morning I rushed off to the ocean to try to catch my first true North Carolina sunrise. I described it as a true sunrise because it is only miles Ocean hindering my view of the Sun. Of course there is a cloud cover that will get in the way from time to time but the east Coast son rises are the most raw.
I sat on the boardwalk snuggled up with my blanket, my cup of almost too strong coffee and my book I watched the cloud cover with anticipation. The fluffy abyss attempted to block out the beautiful son guys but come she's of the brilliant Orange show through. Even with the clouds blocking so radiance the crests of the waves picked up a pink-tinged pathway towards a brilliant fireball tucked in its seams.
I watched the furious waves dash towards the sand dunes, threatening to destroy their existence but never quite making it. I thought about the waves feeding off the moon and running from the sun; the clouds as they attempted to smother any signs of its life-giving rays. All I could think about was the pick crested waves and the obvious increase in daylight. The forces of the world's natural state could not block out the sun.
How I long to live my life in many ways as the sun. Something that brings life and reveals beauty. Something that doesn't even have to be seen to be experienced and make a difference. The sun is an incredibly powerful source of energy. It reflects an incredibly powerful Creator.
Matthew 5:16 says, "Let your light so shine before men; that they may see your good works and glorify your father who is in heaven.
