Boats and Floods

Today’s Activity: Make a paper boat. ⛵

“So the Lord said, ‘I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.’ But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.” Genesis 6:7-8

When floods of bad things happen, if you lean toward Jesus – if you incline toward Jesus, if you rest in Jesus – you get the Gift of Jesus, like an ark of love, holding you, carrying you, raising you gently up through any flood of sadness that fills the world. -Anne Voskamp, Unwrapping the Greatest Gift

Bad things happen. In a span of weeks, about 4 people lost their parents to illnesses. My husband included. We hear of economies rising and falling. We hear of vaccines that harm infants. Nothing is certain. Everything keeps changing. But our good God doesn’t and He invites each one to an ark, a cradle, a cross – He invites us to His arms to hold us in uncertain times. He is our Solid Rock, on whom we can stand. And as the old hymn once said, “All other ground is sinking sand.”
