Fort Matanzas Beach - “What Shall a Man Give in Exchange for his Soul?

And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Mark 8:34-38

Matanzas Inlet - “When You Pass Through the Waters”

But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. 
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
Isaiah 43:1-2

Atlantic - “Who has Measured the Waters?”

Who has measured the waters
In the hollow of his hand, 
Measured Heaven with a span,
And calculated the dust of the earth
In a measure?  Weighted the mountains
In scales and the hills in a balance?

Isaiah 40:12

Fort Matanzas Beach - “He Drew Me Out of Many Waters”

 He sent from above, He took me;
He drew me out of many waters.
He delivered me from my strong enemy,
From those who hate me,
For they were too strong for me.

Psalm 18:16-17

Fort Matanzas Beach - “He drew me out of deep Waters”

 He reached down from on high and took hold of me,
He drew me out of deep waters.
He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
From my foes, who were too strong for me.
They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
But the Lord was my support.

Psalm 18:16-18

“Who is a God Like You?”

18 Who is a God like you,
    who pardons sin and forgives the transgression
    of the remnant of his inheritance?
You do not stay angry forever
    but delight to show mercy.

He will again have compassion on us;
He will tread our iniquities under foot.
Yes, You will cast all their sins
Into the depths of the sea

Micah 7:18-19

Who Gives the Sun for Light?


Thus says the Lord,

Who gives the sun for light by day

And the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night,

Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar;

The Lord of hosts is His name:

Jeremiah 31:35

Above all wisdom and all the ways of man

Fort Matanzas Beach - “A Light has Dawned”

 The people walking in darknesses have seen a great light;

On those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.

Ft. Matanzas Beach - “In the Garden Alone...the Dew is Still on the Roses”

In The Garden

 "I come to the garden alone⁠

while the dew is still on the roses,⁠

and the voice I hear⁠

falling on my ear,⁠

the Son of God discloses.⁠

And He walks with me⁠

and He talks with me.⁠

And He tells me I am His own;⁠

And the joy we share as we tarry there⁠

none other has⁠ ever known.

He speaks, and the sound of His voice⁠

Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,⁠

And the melody that He gave to me⁠

Within my heart is ringing.” ⁠

Lyrics by C. Austin Miles

Fort Matanzas Beach - The Sun Comes Up, It's a New Day Dawning

The sun comes up, it's a new day dawning

It's time to sing Your song again

Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me

Let me be singing when the evening comes.

Excerpt:  10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman

Psalm 34:1 NASB95
I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

Lamentations 3:22 -23 NASB95
The Lord's loving kindness indeed never cease,
for HIs compassion never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.

Fort Matanzas Beach - Flower Vines

When Solomon had finished all these prayers and supplications to the LORD, he rose from before the altar of the LORD, where he had been kneeling with his hands spread out toward heaven.  He stood and blessed the whole assembly of Israel in a loud voice, saying:

"Praise be to the LORD, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised.  Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses.  May the LORD our God be with us as he was with our ancestors; may he never leave us or forsake us.  May he turn our hearts to him, to walk in obedience to him and keep the commands, decrees and laws he gave our ancestors

1 Kings 8:54-58 NIV

Fort Matanzas Beach:  Hurricane winds and waves washed away the sand dunes and destroyed the vegetation.  Nature is coming back; the flowers, shrubbery, vines, wildlife are thriving once again.   

Fort Matanzas Sunrise

 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat.  But Jesus was sleeping.  The disciples went and woke him, saying,  "Lord, save us!  We're going to drown!"

He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?"  Then he got up and revoked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.

The men were amazed and asked, "What kind of man is this?  Even the winds and the waves obey him!"

Matthew 8:24-27 NIV

He Who Turns Dawn to Darkness

He who forms the mountains,
creates the wind,
and reveals his thoughts to man,
he who turns dawn to darkness,
and treads the high places of the earth--
the Lord God Almighty is his name.

Amos 4:13

Peace in the Storm

"Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.  Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise, and the winds beat against that house, it won't collapse because it is built on bedrock."

Matthew 7:24-25

The Sea cannot sink a ship

 An entire sea of water can't sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship.  Similarly, the negativity of the world can't put you down unless you allow it to get inside of you.

The Bread of Life


And Jesus said to them; "I am the bread of life  He who comes to me shall never hunger, and he who  believes in me shall never thirst."

John 6:35
