Because You love me first



Some things I need to know about life, I learned from Noah’s Ark.

One : Don’t miss the boat. 
Two : Remember that we are all in the same boat.
Three : Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.
Four : Stay fit When you’re 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big. 
Five : Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done. 
Six : Build your future on high ground. 
Seven : For safety’s sake, travel in pairs. 
Eight : Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs. 
Nine : When you’re stressed, float a while. 
Ten : Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals. 
Eleven : No matter the storm, when you are with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting..

Lord, I know You have good intentions when You place me in a difficult situation for I know You will lift me up with Your right hand and as You’ll carry me through the darkest streets, I know there will be something good at the end of the journey. Because You have promised me something. I know that Your plans and my plans are different, and that Your plans are greater. But Lord, please give me the spirit of patience, as I am not patient as You are. And the spirit of peace, as my heart is in knots. I put my trust in You, Lord.
