A Delicate Balance

Playa Hermosa on the Pacific Side of Coast Rica

“Should you not fear me?” declares the Lord.  “Should you not tremble in my presence?”  I made the sand a boundary for the sea, an everlasting barrier it cannot cross.  The waves roll, but they cannot prevail; they may roar, but they cannot cross it.

Jeremiah 5:22

I’ve been reading in Jeremiah this week and am struck by the delicate balance of trusting in God’s faithful love and of fearing Him.  He is a Big and Mighty God, and what an incredible thing it is to follow him in obedience and be loved by Him.

  1. Big and Mighty indeed! That is a gorgeous location and photo, and goes perfect with the verse! Thanks for linking up! I hope you have an excellent week! 🙂

  2. I agree with you – this verse springs to mind too

    “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Prov. 1:7)

    Your great photo goes so well with the scripture verse.

  3. This is a beautiful picture! You chose such a wonderful verse to go with it. I love the book of Jeremiah. It falls second to me behind Isaiah.

  4. Wow, that is a great shot, but also an amazing verse. I’ve never come across that verse before. So much beauty and love and wisdom and what a powerful image of the strength of God. Wow.

    Also – I might steal that verse for a future beach shot : ) Just sayin’…..

    Thank you so much for sharing this image, and this verse, with us!
