The Storm

This weekend, we were trapped in a picnic shelter during a downpour. As the lightning and thunder kicked in, Noah snuggles up to Bud and says "I'm scared." Bud, being Bud, begins to explain the scientific improbability of lightning striking us where we’re sitting. His explanation is even complete with a demonstration and some impressive (though questionable) statistics.
Out of nowhere, Molly chimes in with wisdom beyond her years.

“Noah, God will save us!,” she insists.

My question is, what are you afraid of this week? What statistically improbable things might God be asking you to trust him in? Where is the Maker of heaven and earth calling you to be “strong and courageous?"

1"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God[a]; trust also in me. John 14:1

WE just went through that with GArrett the other night with the thunderstorm. No we didn't do the science version, but the idea that "God is moving furniture - spring cleaning of heaven" the next morning Garrett said "God was pushing the couch down the stairs huh?" and walked away. It took me a little while before I put all the pieces together. Boy aren't the children in touch with things that we really miss sometimes. HAve a great week. Miss ya
