Be Held

Happy Tuesday, Sweet Friends!  Today I am sharing a layout I created with my Grandpa on my mind.  Despite the fact that he's been gone for well over twenty years, I still think about my Gramps often.  It seems like yesterday and forever since I've seen him--funny how life is sometimes?

I was thinking about sharing here on what would have been his 100++ birthday and began reflecting on how his passing was really a game changer for me in my walk with Christ.  In this storm, I began to realize that I would find Him, that I could be held, that His promises are all that they say they are....

Acts 27 finds Paul on a boat, in storm, with a bunch of people and more than a boat load of faith in the One who is Mighty to Save.

v.20 "When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope of our being saved was at last abandoned".......keep reading......

v.25 "So take heart, men, for I have faith in God that it will be exactly as I have been told".  READ ON:

v.36  "Then they were all encouraged"....go,  more reading......

v. 44 ..."all were brought safely to land"......

Have you been brought safely?  The storm is a hard place to be.  No doubt about it.  But, my friends, the storm IS where you will find Him.  Keep looking, seeking, searching.  And, allow yourself to just be held.

I used a bunch of goodies from Sweet N Sassy Stamps to complete this layout:  Awesome Thoughts, Note This, Just Be, Outline Alpha, Seek Him, His Wings, and Words of Life 1.

Be Blessed,
