And Jesus said to the winds "Peace! Be still." And the winds stopped and waves were calm. Who is this man, that even the winds and seas obey Him? I retold this story and slowly peace began to reign. By the time I was done retelling one of the most comforting stories in the bible and after a long prayer asking God to speak peace to our hearts, there was silence outside. "Wouldn't that be cool if Jesus spoke that now and this storm stopped?" "He did, Lauren. It is quiet outside." Both girls lay there in amazement and comfort. God is good to these little hearts that have such great faith.
We cling to peace. His word. It speaks. In Him is the only place to be found. Whether we live or die, we are the lords. I would pray, if my time on earth be taken by such a distaster that I cannot control, that when I wake from the sleep of death, I be found in Him in eternity.
And when the winds and waves crashed and beat upon the house, it stood firm. Why friends? Because it was built upon the rock. Jesus Christ.
His word, our hope secure. He will our shield and portion be, as long as life endures.
grip tight to His word. His words bring peace and calm. Truly it is all we have. Thank goodness.
