this is what I seek…
King David writes in the Psalms, “this is what I seek…to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.”
There are moments when I am walking on the beach, windblown and wet, a salty smell in the air, sand stuck to my fingertips and the roar of the ocean drowning every other sound out, when I realize I have come to a place of worship.
I stop and gaze upon the beauty before me. The perfect grayness. The damp wildness. The gritty quiet. A place so magnificent and unexplainable that surely it is a temple.
So I worship.
What else could you do in a moment like this?
