Day 10: watch out for the unexpected!

It is not everyday that you will come across a boat crossing the road! But life is full of unexpected things. Certainly for the Israelites on their journey to the promised land came across many unexpected surprises, not least finding the Red Sea opening up before them so they could cross with dry feet. And for Elijah, having killed all Queen Jezebel’s prophets, fled to the wilderness truly expected to die there and must have been most surprised when ravens brought him  a delivery of bread. 

Indeed the whole of the world God is creating overflows with the unexpected. 

There the ships go to and fro, and Leviathan*, whom you formed to frolic there. Psalm 104:26

*Leviathan is a large sea creature
