Shelter In the Time of Storm
.
                                              
    A SHELTER IN THE TIME OF STORM  

               
   
   In the aftermath of the recent earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan, one
company has developed a novel way to survive.  Get inside a large plastic ball with
a door that seals so that it will float and carry you above the waves.  This may help
in case of a tsunami, but does not do well to weather all the storms ahead.  Only
Jesus and His power can do that. 
    This reminds us of how to survive spiritual storms that threaten to overcome us.
It is only through Christ and His protection that we can be safe. 

     


 The song titled A Shelter in the Time of Storm says it well.                                                                           

1. The Lord's our Rock, in Him we hide,
A Shelter in the time of storm;
Secure whatever ill betide,
A Shelter in the time of storm.

2. A shade by day, defense by night,
A Shelter in the time of storm;
No fears alarm, no foes afright,                                  
A Shelter in the time of storm.                                      

3. The raging storms may round us beat,
A Shelter in the time of storm
We'll never leave our safe retreat,
A Shelter in the time of storm.

4. O Rock divine, O Refuge dear,
A Shelter in the time of storm;
Be Thou our Helper ever near,
A Shelter in the time of storm.

Chorus:
O, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
A weary land, a weary land;
O, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
A Shelter in the time of storm.


                                                                                                   


Cosmo Power Co. President Shoji Tanaka crawls out from a spherical earthquake and tsunami shelter "Noah" made of fiber enforced plastic at the company's factory in Hiratsuka, west of Tokyo, Friday, Sept. 30, 2011. The Japanese generator maker has developed a modern version of Noah's Ark in case Japan is hit by another massive earthquake and tsunami. The company of just 10 employees completed the first Noah, that has 1.2 meters (4 feet) in diameter and can hold up to four adults inside, earlier this month and already has 500 orders
