Mt. Saint Helen's on Easter weekend

Mt. Saint Helen’s on Easter weekend

 

Though the mountains be shaken
    and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
    nor my covenant of peace be removed,”
    says the Lord, who has compassion on you.

Isaiah 54: 10

I needed to read this verse today.

I needed the reminder.

I hope someone else needs to be reminded as well.

I was planning to post the picture I took of Mt. Hood.

The picture is clearer and the mountain is more majestic.

I believe Mt. St. Helen’s captures the verse in Isaiah better.

I think when we have moments of fear and worry and doubts,

we essentially are shaken to the depths.

I wonder if the core of those feelings is believing something or

someone will be removed from our grasps.

I love this verse in Isaiah because it declares that mountains will shake

and the hills will be removed

yet

God’s unfailing love will not be shaken.

God’s covenant promise to offer us peace in the midst of the

quaking will not be removed.

God has compassion for us when we feel shaky.

Mt. St. Helen’s was shaken at its very core but it was not removed.

It looks a little different next to Mt. Hood.

I think we all look a little different when we have been shaken.

Mt. St. Helen’s might not seem as impressive but I believe the stories told

as a result of what it endured are unending.

No matter the shaking you are going through today,

remember you belong to God, whose compassion is extended to you

in a love which can’t be removed.

Reflect over the landscape of your days and be reminded of

the God who steadies you when you have the shakes.

What story could you tell?
