Who enclosed the sea with its doors when bursting forth, it went out from the womb; when I made a cloud its garment and thick darkness its swaddling band, I placed boundaries on it and set a bolt and door, and I said, "Thus far you shall come, but no farther; and here shall your proud waves stop" Job 38:8-11

Where Power Meets Place - Ordinary Days of Summer
Our ordinary routines can numb us, and the hectic 21st century living which applauds “being too busy” dulls the mind. Friendships falter, gathering is hurried, communications shrink to short texts. Sitting at the edge of the sea, I remember God created boundaries for a purpose. This shore line marks where power meets place, where responsibility meets rest. Moments when we can merge our desires with God’s design brings us to a place of restoration. Our souls find repose in our Creator.
Hopefully you will have time to read these four chapters in Job and contemplate the immensity of creation! We often take for granted these miracles of creation. God designed us to be purposeful people who can also be present in these magnified moments. These seemingly ordinary moments are most extraordinary! - dho
