One of my fondest childhood memories is building sandcastles at the beach. Growing up in Florida, we did it a lot, but the experience was very special to me.
Now that I have my own children, I love making sandcastle memories with them when we take trips to visit relatives in Florida. The creations are about the same as when I was a child, and I pray my kids will have a fondness for the experience when they are adults.
The feeling of crafting and shaping with nothing but sand and water to make beautiful creations was precisely what came to mind when I pondered the words of Psalm 95:5. “The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.”
What a picture that puts in my mind. Just imagine the God of the universe carefully crafting all that is on the earth. He formed the land and sea, molded the mountains and smoothed out the plains. He made masterpiece after masterpiece.
He holds everything in the palm of His hand. He is the master creator. Oh, to sing praises to Him. He loves us so much.
