Movement can be seen in all places, the sea is one place movement is abundant, it can move gently with swirls and spirals, or fast with energy and power. The sea can be safe and it can take it out your comfort zone.
I find I can look at the see all, as loads of different emotions run through my body I can feel them disipitate outwards and away. Not matter how stressful a time it has been, some quiet time by the sea sorts me out pretty quick. But the sea and beach is also a place I go to move, I find so much inspiration - from the swirls of sea in the sand, to the water crashing in the rocks and throwing spray everywhere, to the little bits of driftwood that have slowly been worn down from a rough course piece of wood to a smooth, steady, strong piece of wood.
I'd like to introduce Challenge Saturday. Small challenges or thoughts I'll share regularly (not necessarily every Saturday), to encourage you to put your faith into action in a different way. I'm a practical person when it comes to my faith, so I love to find different ways that I can explore and go deeper on my journey, hopefully this will help some of you to do the same.
So this Saturday I want to encourage you to use this picture for inspiration to create some movement thinking about how your week has been, and consider the lulls, business, stressfulness and peaceful moments you might of had in it. Everyone's week i different, and everyone has a different level of 'movement', so you can make this as big or as small as you like.
The picture shows several different states of the sea -
- Dry sand, not been soaked in water
- Sand which received water but is no longer covered
- Water that is receding away from the sand
- Water that is building to crash down onto the beach
- Frothy bits of water where the water is all churned up.
And much more!
But hopefully thats given you some ideas.
Would love to hear how you get on!
