This beautiful ESV Journaling Bible® is named Captiva, inspired by the crystal clear waters of the Gulf Coast in Captiva, Florida. The words chosen for this Bible came easily. It’s near impossible to step into the water, look out as far as your eye can see, and not think “How Great Thou Art.” The vastness of the ocean is overwhelming—it reminds us just how small we are, and just how powerful, beautiful, and big our Creator is. On the back cover, words from Psalm 18:16 fit all too well: “He reached down from on high and took hold of me. He drew me out of deep waters.” Regardless of where you are in life, suffering affects us all at one time or another. Thankfully, an equally true promise is that our God will draw you out of deep waters time and time again, hold you close, and call you His. The Captiva Bible was designed to remind you of the beauty held within the pages of this precious book, and of the faithfulness of our God to always draw you out of deep waters.This Bible was originally hand-painted, then carefully recreated by Hosanna Revival.
