Story Time with Rebecca

Noah and the Big Ark

Tons of years went passed but God was not happy at what he saw. He didn’t like the way the world was going. The people had just become more and more evil and horrible to each other. So, he put an end to it. He wanted a new world.
So, God decided to send a huge flood the biggest flood ever. So that everything bad could get washed away. But Noah and his family were the only good and kind ones, and God wanted to save them. So, God gave Noah careful instructions of how to build an enormous boat what were called arks. God asked him to fill the ark with two of every kind of animal in the whole world. So, Noah went and told some people but they didn’t believe him they just laughed and walked on and said there is no opened water for miles and miles away. Noah didn’t listen to them and went on and built his ark.
Months later the ark was as big as the tallest building. When the ark was finished and it started to rain Noah went and got the animals as what God told him to do
The queue of the animals looked like it would never end, but soon they were all safe in the ark, and Noah got enough food, for the long time they were going to be there.
When Noah and the rest of his family and the animals were safely on board, God shut the door behind them all.

Then it began to rain and rain and rain it came down slowly at first. Then the puddles became into streams and streams became into a flood. It spread across Gods earth until it was so high you couldn’t see the highest mountains could have not been seen. All the people and other animals were dying in the flood. It rained for 40 days and 40 nights and did not stop at all.
Then the waters were going down and it stopped raining. Noah sent his bird out to see if it was safe to leave the ark. The water was covering everything the bird could not land. So that is why Noah sent a dove out and it came cause the water was too high.
So, Noah waited a few more days and sent it back out and this time it came back with a fresh leaf in its beak. Now Noah knew it was going down and the plants were growing again.
So once more Noah sent the dove out again this time it didn’t come back he knew that the flood was gone and it was safe to leave the ark
When Noah opened the big door of the ark all the animals ran out on to the dry land they looked happy.
God then made a promise that he won’t do it again and that is why when you see a rainbow we remember Gods promise.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 15 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.
