What I Read Today;
Exodus 29-30; Psalm 32; Mark 4; 1 Corinthians 16
It had been quite a day for the disciples. They must have been in awe of Jesus. Listening to his teaching and watching the crowds. Then having intimate time alone to hear Jesus expand the teaching he gave to the crowd. A true mountaintop moment if ever there was one.
Have you had a moment like that? Sitting there, having a God moment. Maybe at a retreat? At that moment, you felt like you could touch the very face of God.
Then the storm erupts. Suddenly, your God moment seems like a distant memory. Even though you are rowing as hard as you can. Yet it feels like you’ll be drowned by the storm.
Like every storm life throws at us, your storm will end. I sometimes wonder if Jesus stands and shakes his head, watching us panic and fret. Yet we know he’s always there. In spite of our weakness and lack of faith, Jesus is still there. He’s the one calming our nerves and steeling our nerves. Jesus will always be the one to get us through those storms.
I wouldn’t want to try and get through those storms without him.
