Then Cathy and I began walking in the water and noticed the world under the surface. The water was captivating but I had no idea the beauty that was just below the surface. Snorkeling was the ticket!
The first glance below the surface was unbelievable. I could clearly see fish, coral and a world I was not familiar with. We would see a parrot fish to the right, barracuda to the left, tangs all around us.
God’s glory circled us in the ocean. But the beauty was far beyond stunning. I am not sure that words are adequate to describe all that we saw.
I have to admit that it is not hard to do. We find ourselves too busy to go below the surface with our spouse. We find ourselves consumed in serving Jesus and not sitting at His feet. Our lives in the twenty-first century are going at a lightning pace. Life is such a blur that many things only capture our attention after we pass by. It is like riding a horse backwards.
Take a moment today to take a deep breath. Look around at your life. Where are you missing it? Don’t surface later in life and realize that you have missed the best God has to offer. You should make the choice between good. . .better. . .and best.
Jesus said, Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her. (1)
