About the Book
The Bible uses images of things we know in order to teach us things we do not know. In thirty days of meditations on biblical texts referring to oceans and water, “Oceans of Love” explores the riches of God’s love, a treasure as vast as the oceans that cover the globe. Bible texts and brief commentary coupled with time for personal prayer will take less than fifteen minutes that pay off in a healthy spiritual outlook and build your confidence in God’s love for the next 24 hours.
I have seen storms on both oceans and inland waterways. I have watched a wall of water march inexorably toward our ship as we hurriedly prepared for the invisible hammer that would strike us even before the visible wall reached our boat. I have wandered from one place to another in the midst of storm, rain and wind, looking hopelessly for a place where the anchor could get a grip on the bottom. Black clouds have poured out their water, lightning’s arrows have flashed on every side, ferocious wind has roared in my ears while I trembled, and I have looked for the path of the Lord through the mighty waters.
I think I know how the disciples felt when they set out to cross the Sea of Galilee with Jesus asleep in the boat.
