Anthem Thursday: Ocean

We’re on vacation, at the beach, so it’s no surprise that songs about the ocean are stuck in my head.

Here’s one of my favorites, by Ten Shekel Shirt.

I don’t know exactly what it is about the ocean, but I want to lose myself in it. I don’t really like to swim, and I don’t dwell on drowning, but when I see the ocean, I’m drawn to it and I want to go deeper into it and let it overcome me. I’m literally in awe of it. I don’t think I could study the ocean enough to ever really understand how big it is, how vast, how rich in life and wonder. It’s a mystery. Beautiful, wild and unpredictable. Yet also refreshing and calming.

Like God.

The more I know Him, the more there is to know. He calls me into deeper relationship with Him, yet I won’t know all there is to know about Him in a lifetime. He is wild and calm, beautiful and terrifying, unpredictable yet unchanging.

Born and raised in the Midwest, living in the mid-Atlantic, I need to be reminded about this side of God.

What songs are in your head this week?
