This page was inspired by another bible journaller I follow on Instagram (http://instagram.com/mikipietak). She used one of my favourite pieces of art, Hokusai’s “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” for a bible journaling page and it occurred to me what a brilliant image it was to go with one of my favourite Psalms (is that like having a favourite child? Surely not possible! Ha).
I thought I would share it with a poem I wrote from this same Psalm last November. It was the weekend of the Paris bombings and I woke up on the Sunday morning with this in my head. I hope it encourages you today. Love Rach
God is our strength and refuge where we hide in times of trouble,
When the earth, it opens up, and the mountains turn to rubble,
And the Ocean pulls them in as it’s waters roar and bubble,
God is our strength and refuge where we hide in times of trouble.
There is a mighty river that flows from heaven’s throne,
And where it flows such joy springs up where nighttime tears were sown,
For God is in the midst of her – she’ll never be alone.
There is a mighty river that flows from heaven’s throne.
There is a King upon that throne, the nations at his feet,
And all shall tremble at His voice who causes wars to cease
The God of Angel armies, He alone will be our peace
There is a King upon the throne, the nations under His feet.
Be still and know that He is God, there is no other name!
He will be lifted up until ALL nations know His fame.
In Him alone is freedom from your fear and sin and shame.
Be still and know that He is God! There is no other name.
