Like Noah, Waiting On God

Some of else are going through a lot of hurt and brokenness. We feel alone and forgotten.
Noah might have also felt forgotten as he and his family waited on the ark for the water to recede.
After 150 days of the flood, the ark parked itself on the mountains of Ararat. After being there for two and a half months the mountains began to show again. Then after another forty days, Noah opened the window to let the raven out, and it came back. Seven days later he let out a dove, who came back with an olive leaf. Noah knew it was almost over. After another seven days he released the dove again and it never came back. 
From the start of the flood until the ground was finally dry, nearly a year had gone by.
Have you been waiting for something in your life to recede? Waiting for things to change, for the pain to go away – waiting on God like Noah was?
But God remembered Noah.. verse one, chapter 8 of Genesis.
Listen to this song and reflect on the love, grace and remembrance our God does indeed have for you.
Alive by All Sons and Daughters
This is a call to all the dead and disappointed
The ones who feel like they are done
This is a word to all the ones who feel forgotten
But you are not
Oh you are not
We’re alive, alive, alive we’re singing
We’re alive, alive, alive and we’re shaken
We’re alive, alive, alive, alive in You
We are soaked in all the grace that we’ve been given
Unchained from all that we have done
Your mercy’s rising like the sun on the horizon
We’re coming home
We’re alive, alive, alive we’re singing
We’re alive, alive, alive and we’re shaken
We’re alive, alive, alive, alive in You
