In the news this week, a new invention is starting to collect plastic from the ocean. It’s still new, but it’s starting to work on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Did you know–each year, more than 17 trillion pounds of plastic get added to the ocean, and there are big areas where trash combines –not just one, but FIVE of them. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch–guess how big it is… three times the size of France (or approximately three times the size of Texas).
When the world’s problems seem too big for us to understand? Remember our God is Mighty. He is the Savior. So if you stress out or get anxious about things, remember that God is Good. And He is your Fortress.
I must calm down and turn to God; he is my only hope. 6 He is my Rock, the only one who can save me. He is my high place of safety, where no army can defeat me. 7 My victory and honor come from God. He is the mighty Rock, where I am safe. 8 People, always put your trust in God! Tell him all your problems. God is our place of safety.
Psalm 62-5-8 (ERV)
Dear Lord, Help me to be calm and turn to you in moments of stress. You are my Rock, my safety. Amen.
