God is drawn to our weakness!
Jesus Calms the StormMark 4:36-40
36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was full.
38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awoke him, and said unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
I have felt like these disciples did here, "Don't you care?" I have felt the intense, agonizing fear about the future. Their lives were at stake. They saw the wind, those waves threatening to capsize their boat. Oh, it's so easy for me to see those things so clearly in my life. Through the salt water stinging my eyes, through me shielding my face and body from yet ANOTHER wave, me cowering in the corner from the crashing of the thunder, I peek out from under my arm and find Jesus there!
The hardest thing for these poor disciples was to look up. The hardest thing for me is to look up, look up above to Jesus who has control of everything in my life! He has control of my storm, He has control in my storm! I have chosen to look to Him, when the thoughts of an uncertain future come rushing in, threatening to capsize my boat, I look up.....to Him! When I am overwhelmed by the hurts and pains of this life, I look UP!
Does this look like the face of death?
I choose to look up to the Giver of Life, and trust Him for our daughters life!
And for everything else in between : )
