The Sea Has Many Voices—TS Eliot
Troubled Seas swirl around dry land, backlit by the moon, near Afytos, on the Northeastern coast of Kassandra peninsula, Greece.Something about the ocean touches our soul by whispering the poet’s verses:“The river is within us, the sea is all about us; The sea is the land's edge also, the granite Into which it reaches, the beaches where it tosses Its hints of earlier and other creation: … The sea has many voices, Many gods and many voices.”—T.S. Eliot(The Dry Salvages / Four Quartets)..

Atlantic Beach, Jacksonville Beaches, Florida
A pelican glides just above the breakers in Atlantic Beach, Florida, one of Jacksonville's great beach towns.ABOUT JACKSONVILLE & ITS BEACHES:Broad, sandy beaches... wetlands that surrender to woodlands... skylines of skyscrapers and ocean freighters... palms, magnolias, pines and water oaks dripping with Spanish moss... dolphin and manatee sightings, along with the occasional alligator or shark... and, of course, the highways, office parks, subdivisions, and retailers of American suburbia. Welcome to Jacksonville. Welcome to the Coastal South. Too laid-back for Miami but too urban for Charleston, Jacksonville is situated about halfway between, along the westernmost stretch of America’s East Coast. Once upon a time the city, which has the largest city-proper population in the South, was relatively unknown. Thanks to the Jaguars and a Super Bowl, Jacksonville has raised its profile considerably, but the city still seems to prefer keeping its charms on the down-low while its other Florida sisters battle for tourist dollars. That said, Jacksonville has long been one of the country’s fastest growing cities. A unique mix of big city, beach town, and natural playground, Jacksonville boasts a large (albeit subdued) downtown waterfront, some of the best beaches along Florida's Atlantic coast, and the largest urban park system in the country. Furthermore, the city and surrounding First Coast region have some of the oldest historic sites in America, dating all the way back to Ponce de Leon's landing 500 years ago.WHY WE NEED JESUS, AND HOW TO FIND HIM:We sure live in an amazing world, full of natural wonders, diverse creatures, and reliable scientific forces that all reflect the glory and splendor of Almighty God. From the brilliant reefs to the high-altitude peaks, God's handiwork has inspired generations of travelers to see the far corners of this magnificent planet He created. That said, man is the most special of all God's creations, as it is mankind with whom He seeks a personal relationship. One need not look far, whether in the big cities or remote rural outposts, to see that regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, economic status, or even religious background, all people need a Savior. Though some people strive for perfection, all will always fall short. Fortunately, our Father has seen to it that we don't need to be perfect; we need Jesus. While religion is about man trying to reach God, Christ is God reaching man. Christ died on a cross with all the weight of the past, present, and future sins of humanity on His sinless shoulders. Then, He rose from the dead, conquering death for all eternity. All men and women are broken, but if anyone confesses this brokenness, repents of all that makes him unworthy, and sincerely accepts Christ as Lord and Savior, then the gifts of salvation and eternal life will be his. Too often people find themselves playing games, hiding their true selves, or going through the motions of performing ritualistic "religious" behaviors with apathetic hearts. That said, Jesus already knows everything about every one of us. He created us. He knows our weaknesses, our failures, our temptations, and our insecurities. He sees us for who we really are, regardless of the masks we wear. No amount of money, no respectable status, no fancy clothing, and not even any kind of good works can fool Him. Don't try to be a better version of yourself than you really are. Jesus loves YOU and will meet you exactly where you are. Just be sincere, and if you truly submit yourself to Him, He will help change whatever needs to be changed from the inside out. Trust Jesus! He loves you and wants a relationship with you. Accept Him into your heart, and He will free you from bondage to sin, and the guilt associated with it. If you don't know how to ask Him into your heart, then try saying the following prayer. The exact wording is not important, but the attitude and intentions of your heart are very important. Do it today!Lord Jesus, I recognize that I need you in my life. Thank you for accepting me just as I am. I seek You and want to receive You as my personal Lord and Savior. Please come into my heart, and forgive me for all my sins. I am Yours. Thank you, Jesus!Amen!
