We got into the boat and sailed across the Sea of Galilee. There was no storm. The sea was calm.
But we spoke of the great storm that made the disciples afraid. We remembered that Jesus rebuked the wind and the sea and there was a great calm (from Matthew 8:23-27).
I’ve always liked that story. Jesus still calms any storm. Cry out to him. He hears.
I like to start my days with Bible reading and prayer, so when my grandchildren visit I invite them to join me. One morning Talia (she’s three) and I read how Jesus calmed the storm after the disciples cried out to him in fear (read the story in Matthew 8:23-27).
I asked Talia, “What do you do when you’re afraid?”
Without hesitation, she answered, “I pray to Jesus.”
