Saturday, February 27, 2010 was a day to remember
A horrid earthquake in Chile
And a Tsunami Warning for 1/4 of the world.
Last year while swimming in the Gulf of Mexico,
we never thought "Tsunami"
World, I think we've had a wake up call!
Friday night I was at a worship event and my "God Nudge"came
I was to read Psalm 114. So I did.
For your reading pleasure, here it is from http://www.biblegateway.com/
Copied from The Message interpretation:
1-8 After Israel left Egypt, the clan of Jacob left those barbarians behind;
Judah became holy land for him,
Israel the place of holy rule.
Sea took one look and ran the other way;
River Jordan turned around and ran off.
The mountains turned playful and skipped like rams,
the hills frolicked like spring lambs.
What's wrong with you, Sea, that you ran away?
and you, River Jordan, that you turned and ran off?
And mountains, why did you skip like rams?
and you, hills, frolic like spring lambs?
Tremble, Earth! You're in the Lord's presence!
in the presence of Jacob's God.
He turned the rock into a pool of cool water,
turned flint into fresh spring water.
Did you get goose bumps reading that?
"Sea took one look and ran the other way..."
"What's wrong with you Sea, that you ran away..."
"Tremble, Earth! You're in the Lord's presence!"
It isn't global warming
It isn't el nino
It isn't "the weather man"
"Tremble, Earth! You're in the Lord's Presence!"
During the Tsunami threat yesterday I was in prayer
Calling out to the ocean floor to deepen
So the waters could go down
instead of out causing damage
Thank you Lord for holding back the waters!
You are the Holy One
In Your Presence, we tremble!
Holy is the Lord!
