Storms can be scary! The loud noises of thunder and lightning, and blowing wind, partnered with the changing colors of the sky and the way the world looks as it is bashed about by rain is enough to make even grown-up men shake! That is exactly what happened to Jesus’ disciples one day.
During a great storm, while in a small boat out in the sea (yikes!), Jesus napped. His followers probably wanted to hide, cry, and we know they called out for help. They called to Jesus.
“Jesus! Do you not care that we might die?!”
Jesus, the same Jesus that we can worship today, woke up, and said, “Quiet, Be Still.”
And the storm stopped instantly. (Mark 4:38-40)
While this life will give us many chances to be afraid and run to Jesus for help, we can always trust that He is in control. He is calm, brave, and can handle our fear. He only asks for our faith in return. We can trust Him!
What are you scared of? What would you tell Jesus about your fear?
