The sea and the boats remind me of these verses in the Psalms. Many a fisherman or seaman has faced danger and death and as a result has come to trust in the living God. Life is short when you are faced with the uncertainty of life.
Many of us live a closeted life, detached from the reality of our mortality. We live for the moment and ignore reality.
Life is short
Death is sure
Sin is the cause
Christ is the cure
May God bless you through His word today,
They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the Lord,
and his wonders in the deep.
For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind,
which lifteth up the waves thereof.
They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths:
their soul is melted because of trouble.
They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,
and are at their wits' end.
Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble,
and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof are still.
Then are they glad because they be quiet;
so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
