We’re back from a couple of days by the sea with our youngest daughter,
who is home for a visit from the mid-west,
and our oldest daughter and her family who live nearby, here in Portland.
Portland is about 80 miles inland, so we are blessed to be able to go to the beach often,
something our youngest now misses when she’s in Missouri.
The weather was gray and rainy, but we enjoyed our time sea side anyway.
I immediately knew I wanted this lifeguard stand to be a part of my photo and verse this week.
Who knows how much God rescues us from daily?
I’m sure there are potential accidents, mistakes we make, relationships that aren’t healthy for us, that He rescues us from without us even noticing.
Then there are the things we do recognize and acknowledge He has rescued us from,
depression, a sin bondage, a situation we knew better than getting ourselves into,
so many things.
He rescues us because He delights in us,
because we’re His.
