What a time we are living in right now… it’s unprecedented. The virus, the overload of information and statistics, and the toilet paper!
In the uncertainty of all the changes to our daily lives and the world itself because of the virus, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and worried. Are you concerned? As Christians, we know that fear has no place in our hearts, but let me share something encouraging that I was reminded of …
Jesus Calms a Storm
On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?” -Mark 8:35-41, ESV
In this crazy time, we are in the boat, and Jesus is with us. And while we are awake and agitated, He is sleeping and restful. And when we wake Him with our concerns, He reminds us, “Peace! Be Still! How blessed and thankful we can be for our Savior… a Savior that we can rest in amidst the storms swirling around us. Thank you, lovely Jesus!
