We long for God’s justice and peace; we long to be released from the shackles of fear and injustice and until that time, we cry out with the psalmist, “How long?”
Noah and his family spent a long time on the ark with the animals during the flood. Longer than most of us realize. This time was the in-between time. It was a time of waiting and wondering if God had forgotten him during the storm. Sometimes we find ourselves in the same in-between time as Noah. Through the story of the flood we can learn some ways to weather the storms of life.
