|I colored this picture last year at Joni and Friends Family retreat when the theme was, "Hope Overflowing." As you read this, I pray your heart will overflow with the hope and peace of God's Goodness.|
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
God was grieved by man's sinful heart
So many people went their own way
Noah and his family were the few to obey
So God told Noah to build an arkSoon a big flood would destroy the earth
There would be noting left
Nothing left of worth
It wouldn’t be long
Before God’s creation was gone
But Noah and his family would be safe and sound
For following God’s ways they would not drown
Noah built the ark and brought in the animals two by two
The Lord shut the door and the flood began
For 40 days and 40 nights the rain came tumbling down
The Lord began to flood the ground
While those in the ark were safe and sound
Noah sent out a raven to find dry land
But he came back he found no safe haven
Noah sent out a dove
He found a green leaf
Everyone breathed a sigh of relief
The storm was through!
The earth made
A rainbow appeared in the clouds
nd God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between
me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over
the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds,
I will remember my covenant between me
and you and all living creatures of every kind.
Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.”
The rainbow is more than a pretty little charm
It’s God’s Promise to keep us safe from harm
A beautiful reminder He loves the human race!
Thank you Lord for your Amazing Grace!
