The Tale of Two Ships

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV)

The Titanic was beautiful.

Well, as beautiful as a nautical steamship could get. A complete masterpiece of modern engineering ingeniously intertwined with the highest echelon of luxury. This ship was destined for greatness – to be remembered.

About 4,460 years ago, a man stood back from a different nautical masterpiece. There were no gold trimmings or alabaster floors, but it was astounding just the same. This ship was destined to serve God and save His people.

The Titanic left New York harbor with a mighty cheer from the passengers aboard. They were waving and throwing hats through the air like an old film. People watched from the docks both in awe and patriotic tears, waving back and shouting promises. A young boy set a pair of slugs down on a railing as his siblings closed the massive door to their boat, listening as the rain began to fall down outside. They were all afraid but they were faithful – God would get them through this.

On April 14, 1912, four days after departure, the Titanic hit a massive iceberg and began a three hour descent as it sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

Forty days later, the Ark reached land and God provided for Noah and his family to flourish in their new environment.

Don’t place your trust in man – but in God who is the author of life and lover of your soul!

Remember: The ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic was built by professionals.

She has a strong affinity for sarcasm, shiny purple things, and random, useless information that “normal people probably wouldn’t care about.” She likes to sing, act, draw, write, read, and make fun of Prince Charming in her spare time. Some of her epic skills include: surviving a piano being dropped on her, carrying on a five hour conversation with a wall, and making a grilled cheese sandwich spontaneously explode. (read more…)
