“The waters increased and lifted up the ship.” Genesis 7:17
The storm hit. Big. A life changing tempest. Noah had to be afraid, I sure would be.
The verse up top reminded me of the day I got my cancer diagnosis. Sudden. Unexpected. Things happened fast, I really didn’t have time to be scared.
But scared didn’t arrive until much later.
While, with all my heart, I wished for a miracle… for the docs to proclaim, “We made a mistake. You don’t have cancer,” that news never arrived.
Instead, I sat alone. In my ship. As elements beyond my control took over.
Five years later and I’m still a bit gobsmacked when I think about everything that happened.
What I learned that day… and from this verse… is that God doesn’t remove the storm. But there’s usually a way through it.
And you’ll emerge on the other side utterly changed.
