It rained while I wrote yesterday’s Noah post – gently, not ferociously.

God promised He would never cover the whole Earth with water again. He promises that floods will come – in this world I have trouble, no doubt – but my faith will never be completely overwhelmed.

    Debbie I love these scriptures! So encouraging to know that he will bring us through the storm because of his character not ours as long as we are in Christ Jesus. To think he will present his bride glorious, without fault, perfected, complete and guiltless despite our failures and shortcomings makes me rejoice in him with thanksgiving!
