If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Sea

Today is Day 29 of the 31 Day Writing Challenge with a prompt from Five Minute Friday. The prompt for today is "Sea."

If you've been around here very much lately, you probably have a pretty good idea what I'm going to write about.  Seeing as how I'll be leaving on vacation very soon and going to the beach that sounds like a good thing to write about for the prompt "sea".  Of course, I'm not actually going to the sea, I'm going to the Atlantic Ocean.  But for my blog that's close enough. 

I am so looking forward to walking on the beach and sitting on the balcony reading and watching the waves, dolphins and birds.  I plan to do some shell hunting and who knows what all.  I can't wait to get there and relax.

Another thing for sea, would be the Bible study we just finished last night on Jonah by Priscilla Shirer.  Remember when Jonah ran from God's direction in is life and took off for Tarshish instead of Nineveh.  Well, he got thrown into the sea and a big fish swallowed him and for 3 days he was inside.  God definitely got his attention and Jonah decided to be obedient to God and God gave Jonah the same command again, to go to Nineveh.  Tell me, why don't we obey God the first time, every time?  You know, life would be so much easier and better if we did.
