Love to walk as I pray! Check out where I walked this morning for prayer:
Visiting my daughter in Santa Maria, I woke early, took the opportunity to visit Guadalupe State Beach. If you are into solitude, this is your place. The pale-colored sand is continually shifting. Dunes appear and disappear. The crashing surf is far too violent for sporting while the rounded sand particles massage your feet like some spa treatment. The Guadalupe Beach is hypnotically beautiful, threateningly dangerous, and somehow totally satisfying.
I breathe deeply, praising God for the wonder of this place, and suddenly feel a unified part of the scene. I am reminded that the Lord found mankind to be the pinnacle of His creation. My! Creator God is looking at the few of us scattered on this isolated beach and saying, "Very good!"
Of course, my natural mind staggers a bit with this. Then, I come into agreement with Him: "Thank you, Lord, that I am fearfully and wonderfully made." (Psalm 139:4) Powerful prayer to repeat through the day! Try it out and check out the results. Changes you, doesn't it?
