Matthew, Chapter 8, Verse 26
Then he got up, rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was great calm.
In many respects I can identify with the apostles in this verse. I have been in the sea of tribulation for the last four years. I am terrified.
In the first reading of today; I feel much like Lot. My livelihood has been taken from me and my wife’s love toward me has died; she has become a pillar of salt toward me just as Lots wife did when she looked back. My working years are behind me and I struggle for my daily bread.
Yet I know the Lord although sleeping, is in the boat with me. I wait for the L, my soul waits and I hope for his word. (Psalm 130:5)
