God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah
(Selah: pause, and thinking calmly of that)
My daughter who is a student at U.C. Berkeley was on her way home from school early Friday morning when she heard about the devastation in Japan. As the story unfolded and as she watched people's reaction to the news coverage of the events (including her own reactions), she was prompted to write down her feelings. She is on staff and a contributor to a campus magazine and it's blog and you can read her article by clicking here. I thought she said it beautifully.
