Late that day he said to them, “Let’s go across to the other side.” They took him in the boat as he was. Other boats came along. A huge storm came up. Waves poured into the boat, threatening to sink it. And Jesus was in the stern, head on a pillow, sleeping! They roused him, saying, “Teacher, is it nothing to you that we’re going down?”
Awake now, he told the wind to pipe down and said to the sea, “Quiet! Settle down!” The wind ran out of breath; the sea became smooth as glass. Jesus reprimanded the disciples: “Why are you such cowards? Don’t you have any faith at all?”
They were in absolute awe, staggered. “Who is this, anyway?” they asked. “Wind and sea at his beck and call!” Mark 4:35-41 (msg)
Some days I think of the storm in this story as situations we come across – but today, I can only see the storm as the world. Lord, grant me the faith to not doubt your authority and goodness, to live like you are God! Help me to not plan and rationalize from my limited perspective, but to Live fully, Love deeply and trust simply. Thank You for being You. Amen.
