There is a serenity that releases within me when I step into the soft sands by the ocean. So many senses are awakened when I am at the beach. The sand between my toes generates a coarse granular impact that results in a smoothing out of rough places.
Isn’t it funny, a grain of sand is so tiny, but the sands on a beachfront represent multitudes of larger rocks and shells that have been weathered through life’s storms and the basic movement of the tides . A newly formed beauty with regenerated purpose.
Sand is even referenced in the changing of seasons and the passing of time. It is interesting that sand alone is considered to be a risky foundation when building a structure, but when a storm is coming, sandbags are used to shore up and hold off surging floodwaters.
Like everything in life, a place, purpose and season formed by the Creator. My hope and prayer is that God will make smooth the way before you and refresh you in this place, wherever you find the sand between your toes, whether on a serene beach, or trekking through a lonely desert.
