God Isn’t a Glacier

My husband and I recently had the opportunity to vacation in Iceland. I can’t even tell you how many people asked us, “Why would you want to go there?” I wanted to see the Northern Lights and climb glaciers.

While hiking nearly to the top of a glacier, close to the top of the world, my breath was taken away. Our pictures, like the one in this post, don’t do the beauty justice. I couldn’t help but thank God for creating such an amazing place and allowing us to experience it.

Our tour guide told us that the glaciers are melting at such a rate that some scientists estimate that they will be gone in 100 years. How can these enormous blocks of ice shoved between rocks (mountains, really) that have been around for centuries be gone one day?

We listen to the news of all the horrible things going on in this world, such destruction. Mass shootings, acts of terror… Yes, even nature itself reflects the uncertainty of our fallen world — we expected an early spring here in Colorado, yet we went from 70 degrees Fahrenheit to a complete blizzard with 2 feet of snow the next day.

Clearly nothing in this world is guaranteed to us. God is the only thing that’s guaranteed.

The Lord promised that He will take care of me and direct my path. He promised that I will meet Him one day if I’m diligent in my service to Him. How wonderful is that? The Lord is my rock and He will not change regardless of what happens in the world around me. He is “the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Heb. 13:8). I am so comforted knowing this in a world where so much is unknown.
