Jesus asleep in the stern of the boat. Up the winds did howl and the waves did break. The boat was tossed to and fro. But there slept Jesus. Seemingly oblivious to the precarious position He and the apostles were in. Wake up Jesus, don’t you know that we’re all going to die?
Now awake because of his disciples’ fear, Jesus utters only small words, “Peace.” “Be Still.”
Even the wind and waves obey even the smallest Words of Jesus.
And yes, even the winds of change and the storms of this life, whether created by your own sinfulness or those which are out of your control obey the gentle words of Jesus. “Peace.” “Be Still’ Even though there may be moments that it may seem that our Savior is sleeping in our lives, know that these words are for you, “Peace.” “Be Still.”
