Earthquakes of life

Post  fennywest on Wed 27 Jan 2010, 5:31 pm

Earthquakes of life
Come all of a sudden
Often taking dear life
Bringing on big burdens.

Just like in Haiti
We’re shaken to the core
Just like the tsunami
We wonder what they are for

They are no respecter of persons
Whether you are rich or poor
They usually teach us some lessons
That can raise us from the floor.

Earthquakes teach us
That everything can be moved, overturn, shaken
Resulting in catastrophe, great loss
Only God remains still and calm.

Quakes of life teach us we are vulnerable
Limited in our ability and resources
They make us look up to the One able
Bringing hope and joy as we share our resources.

So when the earth caves in
And mountains are carried into the sea
Let’s rally round, trust God, and not sin
Acknowledging, He is the Master of the Sea.

1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see the works of the LORD,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
he burns the shields with fire.
10 "Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."
11 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Ps46

Yes, we all have earthquakes, suddenlies devastate us at one point or another. Yet our Heavenly Father allows all things for a reason in our lives. We are but to look to and trust Him. Blessings.
