A New Ocean

This week’s prompt: Ocean.

“Oceans” by Hillsong United is one of my favorite songs. Whenever I hear it, I am challenged to trust God with my life and allow Him to pull me out of my comfort zone and into the greater plan He has for me.

Recently, the metaphor of an ocean has been resonating with me as I ponder my upcoming transition to college life. I don’t know what’s coming, I can’t see what the end looks like, I don’t know who or what I’ll encounter, and I don’t know how to swim that far.

As I embark on this journey, I need to take a deep breath and relinquish control to God. I believe that He has an amazing plan for me that surpasses anything I can imagine, and I know this is the next step He is calling me to. I will hold onto His Word as the only anchor I have in this new ocean I’m entering.
