He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. (Psalm 107:29)
Everyone loves a sea when the waves are gentle and the boat is under control. An adventure at sea is thrilling, until a storm rises suddenly, leaving no time to get back to shore. Even the most experienced sailors cannot out smart nature every time.
Life has seasons of storms for everyone. Storms do not care about titles, position, wealth,education, lineage, or many of the things that humans use to rise above socialdespondency. Though we try, we cannot control life completely.
In the gospels (Matthew 8, Mark 4), we find the disciples at sea, in the midst of a storm,along with Jesus who was asleep on a pillow. The boat was about to sink, the waves werepouring in, and the disciples were scared for their lives. Yet Jesus was at peace.
