Storms

Mark 4:35-41

35 On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” 36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”
39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 40 But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” 41 And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”

Life is full of adversities. If feels like a constant storm. We feel we can not fight it. Yes, life has adversities. Do you have faith? Faith in our Father to meet our needs? Adversities help in building our character. Are we focused on building character of Christ or of the world? I thank God that HE is there by my side and when I can't handle life's issues He carries me through. I have faith that God is my protector, my counselor, my ALL in ALL. He gets me through the storms.

I'm including a music video that I pray will be an inspiration that the Lord will help us through our storms.
