Your soul is always safe and sound.
Listen to the song: “I Will Give You Rest”
Suddenly a violent storm came up on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by waves; but he was asleep. They came and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” He said to them, “Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?” Then he got up, rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was great calm.
We all experience rough seas in our lives.
But during these times…there is always a safe harbor…deep inside us.
Jesus knew that nothing could disturb the inner calm of his soul. It could not be harmed by circumstances that will not last.
Most of us are control freaks. That’s why we freak-out so much when we encounter storms that we cannot control.
But Jesus’ message to his followers was to trust in a higher power when those storms popped up. That is when our faith can be nurtured and strengthened as we admit that we are not in control.
Jesus constantly told his followers: “Do not be afraid.”
God’s unconditional love for us never changes.
It is only in those times of turmoil when we can truly experience what faith is and allow it to transform us.
Cultivate a calm interior by setting aside times of quiet meditation or contemplative prayer. Then even when storms engulf you…inner calm will remain.
What are the storms that are raging in your life?
Have faith! Jesus invites you to rest in his care and peace which is always available…in each moment.
