When it was evening, the disciples of Jesus went down to the sea, embarked in a boat, and went across the sea to Capernaum. It had already grown dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. The sea was stirred up because a strong wind was blowing. When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they began to be afraid. But he said to them, “It is I. Do not be afraid.” They wanted to take him into the boat, but the boat immediately arrived at the shore to which they were heading.
Jesus comes to us in the middle of our storms. He calms the storm and brings us to shore safely, if we let Him. Do you invite Jesus into your storms? If not, why not?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for calming the storms of my life and helping me to find my way home. In Jesus’ holy name, I give you praise, honor and glory, Amen.
Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you, Alleluia!
