In Psalm 107, the author talks about God calming life's storms and he illustrates the kind of people for whom storms are calmed. I love that this chapter is repetitive, that the author includes a variety of people, and that the end result is the same. While this chapter is directly referring to the Jews returning from exile in Babylon, it's main point is still applicable to us today: when we put our trust in the Lord, He will quiet the storms.
I think it's also important to point out that He will calm our storms in His time, not ours. This might take a few weeks, it could take a few years or even decades. And for some the storms may not be calmed until death.
But they will be calmed!
Because, as our pastor says, the worst thing is never the last thing.
Want to join in this challenge?
Here's how to participate:
1. Select a scripture.
My hope is that each week you will search your Bible and select a verse that has meaning for you.
Here's a link to a good Bible verse search engine.
2. Add a photo to it.
I hope that you will chose a photo that goes with your chosen scripture, and not just throw these two elements together. The photo can be from your archives or a new shot. Please only use your own photos. You can have the scripture on your photo, below it, make a collage - however you want, as long as the two elements are together!
3. Put the Scripture & a Snapshot button in your post.
You won't be deleted or banned if you don't. It just helps spread the word...and the Word. ;)
It also helps visitors from the blog hop quickly identify your Scripture & a Snapshot post.
4. Come back here and link up your post.
Please link directly to your Scripture & a Snapshot post, not the home page of your blog.
