Man and Ocean

"Lord, how vast is thy ocean!
And how little is my boat!"

the sea looks calm and serene...but i'm still afraid of it. i dunno, but i'm not a beach person and i'm so scared of the sea. i wonder why is that?

I wonder, if that man ever finds his way back when he's out there without a landmark around. Perhaps, the sun is his guide.

EVEN how vast is the ocean and how little is your boat BUT if you decide to sail your voyage of life with faith and will, you will definitely get "there"! NICE WORD YOU HAVE HERE EV!

wow! excellent shot and that passage completely matches it.

I took that quote from a priest's sermon some years have passed.

He said that no matter how much he'd try to define the things of the earth, still they're too hard to fathom. And that he realized that he's but just a speck of the universe if compared to God's infinite power and glory. He'd been through a lot of challenges in life. And even if how much he'd give reason to them all, still there are things of the earth that only God alone knows their reasons.

All these I affirm.

Amen to that, ev! we must not question Him because even failures serve as lessons for us to succeed!

God controls all things. We need only to trust in Him. =)
