Everyday Waves of Life
My friend, Michelle, shared; “The waves (trials and circumstances) can be very real and overwhelming. The question is not whether or not I see them; the question is whether or not I see ONLY them. They are temporary, but they are tempting me away from the Eternal One. It's not about the waves; it's about walking...simply because He says ‘Come!’”
That’s truth and it’s beautiful! It’s the truth we read in Mark 4:35-41. Jesus says to the disciples, “Let’s go over to the other side of the lake” but a furious storm of hurricane proportions arises with waves crashing into the boat. Where’s Jesus? He’s asleep inside the boat. “Master, don’t You care that we’re dying,” the disciples ask. Without answering Jesus rises and rebukes the wind and sea, “Be still,” He says and a great calm of perfect peacefulness comes. When Jesus says, “you’re gonna to get to the other side” you better believe you’re gonna see the other side no matter what stormy trial you’re facing. Go forward…everyday.
