Mark 4:35-41

Storms

Storms

"You don’t get to pick when the storms come.  Nobody does. Sometimes the gale-force winds come out of nowhere. When they do it’s easy to be overwhelmed, to be frightened. It’s natural to turn to God and say, “Don’t you care?” But God does care, and Jesus is right there in the boat with us. He has not abandoned us. He will bring peace. That’s what lets us be strong; that’s the source of our courage. Not our own toughness, not our bravado. His presence."
