Jesus Calms the Storm

23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”
26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

This tale of fearful disciples and their protector gives me peace about the burdens which weigh so heavily on my shoulders.

My shortcomings burden me.  
Others' shortcomings discourage me. 
Light? Hope? Seems bleak. 

Without the guidance of scripture, I would be crushed in agony.

Praise God for the Lord Jesus, and the death he took for me. 

Praise God for the Lord Jesus, who stepped between me and the evil one who wars for my soul. 

My protector silences the threats of the evil one.
