Day eight’s word prompt for Lent is MIGHTY.
For me, the word mighty conjures up mountains, high seas, a knight in armour, a white charger snorting for battle.
All of these were created by the one whose name is Mighty.
On days like today when I’m tired, a bit stressed and generally out-of-sorts, I want someone who is bigger than me to turn to. I need someone wiser than me, who is never stumped or in a mood, who is always consistent and knows what to do. This Mighty One invites me to come to Him and give him my rubbish and mess so that He can give me His rightness and peace and joy. It’s a great deal.
This painting of Britain’s Lake District by my dad is a powerful reminder that my help comes from the Mighty One who created them both.
