Lent 36 No Need to Fear

psalm 46IMG_8461

Lent 36
The photos are the exact same place on the exact same day. But in one there are waves and in the other calm.
 
Calm is the natural state of that water.
Peace is our natural state too.
We were created to live in joy and shalom.
 
I had the Littles with me yesterday.
A rather large boat went past way out in the water.
 
Suddenly to their delight, waves appeared.
Both boys were delighted and full of joy.
 
After the waves passed I asked the older one (7) what caused the waves?
He was completely befuddled. So I asked him, what happened just before the waves?
Still mystified.
I said, “Remember that BIG boat? It caused the waves.”
We were intentional to see the wake and waves from the next boat that came along. It was much smaller.
 
Sometimes, isn’t life like that for us? We are going along and life is calm. Then suddenly with no warning life is full of waves. Sometimes we delight in the good surprise but other times, not so much. Thank goodness we have a God who is always with us and so we do not need to fear.
 
The river returned to peace and calm. Kason learned a new fact. I think I learned a lesson too.
