The Phil Leng Team: Oregon: Cannon Beach

The Ocean Makes Me Feel So Small

The Ocean Makes Me Feel So Small

The Ocean Makes Me Feel So SmallCannon Beach Oregon

The waves coming in relentlessly
The incredible power that I could do nothing to resist.
The sheer expanse as I look out to the end of the horizon, and realize it keeps going and going and going.

And I reflect.
I want my life to be extraordinary, larger than life, hugely significant. But it seems so ordinary, so underwhelming, so run-of-the-mill.

Cannon Beach OregonI want to be a world changer. I want thousands of people to thank God for the impact I have had on their life.
I feel like a world conformer. Working to pay for bills. Nothing special. No great impact. Few people affected let alone impacted.

I want to leave behind a legacy. I want a church full of people at the funeral when I die.

Instead I wonder, will I fill a chapel. Will anyone even notice that I'm gone?

As I say, the ocean makes me feel so small.

“Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher.[a]
  “Everything is meaningless!”
Now all has been heard;
  here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,
  for this is the duty of all mankind.” (Ecclesiastes 12:8 and 13)
