When everyting goes wrong

I was reminded of the priests standing in the middle of the Jordan with the ark of the covenant when I read in Psalm 114 how the sea flees and the river Jordan turns back, the earth trembles at the presence of the Lord, the rock turns into a pool of water and the flint into a fountain of waters.

When I am filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit I can stand in the midst of hardship with confidence that the God who made heaven and earth, is in control of this situation, and that in Jesus I can freely come to Him with my problem.

He can even turn the hearts of flint around me (next to me) into living water.  For that I may pray with confidence – not confidence in my faith, but in Him who is faithful.

Hi there! I am an South African expat, living in the lovely Kent countryside in the UK.
I love everything meaningful and beautiful - so I try my hand at photography, painting, embroidery, needlework, cooking and writing.

My inspiration for all of this: the people that I love,
and the love that God has for me.
