Remembering the motion of waves

I pray that out of the riches of His glory that you may be strengthened with power through His Spirit, that God may make His home in your hearts. Eph 3:16-17

Ever go to the beach and then still feel like you are being rocked by the waves hours later when you lie in bed that night? This phenomenon of feeling like you are moving even when you are still is called an “illusion of self motion.” The sense of God in us and with us is more than an illusion. God at home in our hearts is like feeling the rhythm of His waves even when we aren’t directly, consciously thinking about God or praying. We are constantly affected by wave after wave of His love, grace, wisdom, hope, and goodness. Sometimes we are more aware of it.

Lord, thank you for being in me, with me, and for me all the time.
