We may face many ‘storms’ in our lives, but the Bible reminds us that there is hope. Just as Jesus was in control of the storm in Mark 4:35-41, God is in control of all our lives. The hands that calmed the storm are the very hands that lead us, guide us and protect us.
There are moments in our lives where despair and doubt seem to be very real to us, but God’s presence with us gives us the Hope and the Promise that He is near, that He is our help in time of need. God knows the storms in any situations we’ve had. While our doubt of His grace and capability to provide for us often causes us to sink into the water, He never fails to always shower us with His mercy. He sent Jesus to give us hands of hope while we are in the mist. He will help us to complete our life journey.
The world is about to be flooded and there are still obstacles between the snails and the Ark. The sea between the Ark and the snails represents the obstacles the snails have to overcome in order to be safe from the flood. I chose to illustrate this because the Ark, which represents God, provides a sense of hope that motivates everyone – that no matter who you are, to face all your challenges and not give up.
