Be Still

The beach is crowded on this bright sunny day. Families are on vacation and slathered with suntan lotion they sprawl out on lounge chairs and blankets. Umbrella’s are opened protecting from the sun’s bright rays.

Children’s laughter and innocent screams are heard as they romp in the shallow water. Men and women splash each other as their laughter rings out. Gentle waves caress the sandy beach as they splash and play.

Parents watch attentively from their blankets under the umbrellas. Snacks are in baskets and drinks cooling in coolers. The day is perfect, or so it seems.

Suddenly a scream is heard and people run to the water’s edge. A Man appears and wades out into the chest deep water and dives under the wave reaching a lifeless, limp gentleman that has gotten sucked into the undertow.

The Man pulls the lifeless body to the surface and leans forward  breathing a life-giving breath into him. With that one breath the gentleman spurts water and begins to thrash about violently.

“Be still and know that I am God,” the Man states.

The gentleman relaxes and stops thrashing.

Peace and tranquility has returned to an almost perfect day.

(Sue’s version) Psalm 46:10
