Storm (Mark 4:35-41)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “storm.” I was thinking about the time that JC was rollin’ with the disciples through the Sea of Galilee. He was pretty tired after a long day of ministry and decided to get a little sleep. As you may remember, the events that happened next were a crazy test of faith. A storm came up, the disciples got scared and woke up JC… and of course, he calmed the storm.

"They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
~Mk. 4:41

There are tons of teaching moments in this small passage. My question though is: do you really believe that JC will calm the storms in your life? Sometimes we say we trust, but then get all crazy and flustered, stressed, and sometimes we panic. My prayer is that you really take a long look at the way you view JC and his power in you life. He wants to intercede for us. He will calm the storms that come up. Even though we feel life is spinning out of control, the Savior has us in his arms. So, when you look up and see those storm clouds… praise God for getting you through the storms – both physically and spiritually. Let’s have a great swim meet!!!

Praying for you,
