Fiji Islands

If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there Your hand will guide me, and Your strength will support me.  Psalm 139:9-10

If we could actually do what the Psalmist suggests and ride the wings of the morning to the farthest oceans, we might end up in Fiji.  Situated directly east of the north coast of Australia, Fiji is made up of about 300 beautiful islands.

Because the International Date Line passes between some of these islands, Fiji is one of the first countries in the world to welcome each new day.

Most of us won’t have the opportunity to visit these islands, but if we did, God would be every bit as present there as He is anywhere else in the world.  We can experience the love of God and the comfort of His presence no matter where we are.  He is present everywhere.

Father, I’m grateful that your strength and guidance are always available, ready to refresh me wherever I may be.  Amen.

What’s the farthest ocean/place you’ve visited?  How were you impressed by God’s handiwork there?

Blessings, Ellen
