Recently I visited Fort Sheridan Beachon the north shore of Lake Michigan and this is what I saw as I got out of the car.
By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such canâ€™t see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his divine being. Romans 1:20 This. This is why I come here Here I am reminded of your existence, of your character, And why I can trust you when the pieces don't fit.
To the north I see your handiwork. To the south it continues And I am reminded. I can hold in tension two truths about life Sometimes it's hard, desperately difficult Sometimes it's good, heart-stoppingly beautiful
And You are present In both. For today It is enough for me.
