No Storm Too Big
Following Jesus' instructions, the disciples (with Jesus) head out by boat. Part way through their journey, they encounter difficulty in the form of a great wind storm that threatens to sink the boat. As the waves and water begin filling the boat, the disciples are scared. Jesus, on the other hand, is comfortably sleeping in the stern of the boat as the storm rages around them.
Difficult situations (storms) are simply part of life. But as followers of Christ, we don't have to respond in fear when our circumstances feel overwhelming. What a comfort to know that God is in control, He knows our situation and He will be there to guide, direct and sustain us in and through our storms.
How has God helped you navigate in and through the storms? And if you're up for it, encourage us with one of your stories. Tami
