God... in the storm!

If you look carefully, you'll notice a rainbow
The Irish sea is angry this morning... it's foaming and filled with whitecaps.  I went down to the harbour and stood out in the strong winds and watched the powerful waves breaking on our shore.  It was amazing.

I thought I'd share a couple of pictures and some thoughts I had while watching in amazement....





"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall in the the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam..." Psalm 46:1-3


Can you imagine walking that pier?






"Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you..." Isaiah 43:1-2

Not bad words, huh?  Let's just say I left there encouraged and powerfully aware of HIS presence...


Oh that we would always have eyes to see the myriad of ways God is present in our world and in our lives.
