Marriage is like riding a wave. Some individuals become anxious and fail to wait on the right one.
This inspiring testimony of Beth Hamilton will touch the heart every viewer. As Beth displays her natural gift of surfing we also learn the importance of conquering our fears instead of allowing them to rob us of the purpose that God has in our life. Beth did not let the public ridicule nor her loss of her arm to stop her from chasing after her wave. She learned to listen to her heart and this allowed God to show her the way.
We all might not be surfers but we all have a wave to catch in the kingdom of God. The object is to discover our purpose in the waves of the spirit and then allow God to teach us how to surf in the living waters of Jesus Christ. We all miss a wave from time to time and sometimes we get rolled around while learning to stand but what matters is how we pick ourselves back up to ride again. The object in surfing as it is in life is learning to balance in the waves of this world through the love of Jesus Christ.
Here is a poem from the book Special Delivery on pages 106 – 107 that the Lord placed on my heart that relates to the message within this movie and the beauty within true love:
Riding A Wave
Marriage is like riding a wave. Some individuals become anxious and fail to wait on the right one. While some just drift looking for the perfect wave that never comes or just passes them by.
There is no perfect wave but only the One of God and the object to locating your wave that will fit is learning how to accept what you have and learning how to commit.
Before you begin, it is best to start out slow. First on your stomach, then to your knees and when you feel the time is right you learn how to stand hand in hand.
As you both begin to balance riding the same wave and learn to travel the same common direction, you never take your focus off the one you love to maintain your balance in giving that needed affection. Sometimes the waves may get choppy but you can learn how to ride by always keeping your love right by your side. There will be times when you must part but this does not mean that it is any different from the start. You can always feel their presence no matter the distance you may be because you know the love that you carry in your heart.
In these times that you are not physically together you are still traveling the same direction because you are spiritually connected. This is like being in a love tunnel inside the same wave in not being able to see each other but you know you both are going the same Way.
While the other may be on top and you are in the tunnel you both stand strong maintaining your balance in the love that you carry. Sometimes the rolls may reverse from who is on top but where the confidence comes in is knowing that neither will stop!
A relationship takes daily nourishment to stay on the same wave. It is when we neglect these principles in love that we will begin to drift apart.
If you truly want your love to grow in every aspect of life then feed it daily with the love of Jesus Christ and your love will never part in every day that you start! Amen
