Oh God, as you worked through Jesus to still a storm, send your Holy Spirit to come and still the storms of life in our time, through Christ, Amen.
I might be taking this scripture wrong. I’ve read it several times. As I read it, it reminded me when I was so angry with God, when God didn’t rescue me from the storm I was going through. The sad part is that God was always there but, as usual, I buried my emotions so deep the only thing left was the anger I felt. No matter how I prayed, I couldn’t get past my feelings. I know now if I could go back to that time, with what I learned here, I would have handled things differently. I know it sounds crazy but once I could forgive myself for holding all that anger inside, I could finally forgive them. So I see now that God has stilled the storms around me. God hasn’t just calmed them, God calms the storms around all of us. As I sit still during our services I clear my mind and let God in. If there are storms around us; God calms them. I’m not perfect, I unfortunately lose faith. There will always be storms but it is up to us to trust God and the Holy Spirit will be there to lead us out. Praise God.
