Noah found favor with the Lord
I have been going through a daily devotion called The Greatest Gift by Ann Voskamp.
History it’s self it is testament to the King of the Cross
BC – Before Christ & AD – After Death also A.D. is a Latin abbreviation for Anno Domini ‘in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ, – All of history is either before or after this one day.
AD –VENT – PROCLAIM HIS COMING – this one who would Die and Rise again – THE COMING ONE .
His birth …His coming ….all for that One day of suffering
Where God would forever be with us in our suffering
never leaving us alone
Ann asks and will you join us:
When have you felt flooded, overwhelmed by the waves rising around you?
In what ways has God been an ark in the midst of your own flood?
How does it feel to picture the tears of God, to know that He suffers alongside you?
Flooded with overwhelming wave
the kind that crashes upon and up in your face
making it hard to breath
I am understanding the wave happens
when I try to swim along alone
When I don’t know what to do
I begin to work harder wearing my limbs
and lungs out treading water
Sometimes I forget the life boat is right next to me
If I would only grab hold
He is always there my Ark of salvation in the midst of the waves
I think He feels much in a way as we do
If we are called on for help we reach and life up
like Peter calling on Jesus as he sank
How do you help one who doesn’t not call on you?
Its not easy to grab a flailing wild one …. like me
But when we speak simple words
He scoops us up in arms of love
To think of the suffering King who cries with me
Who walks with me and talks with me
even when I am deaf and dumb
He who cries with me even though I cant see Him
He never leaves or forsakes
only faith in knowing this
lets me feel His tears crying with me
