My children's morning Bible lessons are a ministry to me, too. Countless times, I've found myself weeping at the table as my three little boys eat their breakfast cereal. Somehow, just the right story is always on the next page. God reaches down and shakes my shoulders with His truth before my morning mug is even empty. We read "Jesus Stills the Storm" this morning. I choked up as I read the line, "Master, don't you care that we are about to drown?" How impertinent to speak to Jesus... in the exact way I speak to Jesus in my prayers. “Don't you care? Do you even see this?” I shout to the Lord about my challenges, pounding my chest as the stormy waters soak my hair and threaten to sweep me overboard. It's an ugly picture, and Jesus in moments will rebuke his disciples’ lack of faith. Because there was one thing they didn’t have to yell. They never had to yell, "Where are you?" because he was in the boat. The Creator of the universe was in their boat. What a reminder to me! I am not alone. When it's stormy, when it's pouring rain, when the wind is so strong I can't take a deep breath... I am not alone. He is in the boat with me. Today I will cling to the truth that my Savior is in this boat with me. And in His perfect timing, the storm will be calmed. "They had never before heard of anyone who could command the wind and waves like this. It was almost like Creation week, when God said 'Let there be light!' ... and the world was made at His command. Now the Creator had spoken again and creation recognized His voice." — Quote from Life of Christ, by Beka Horton and Fannelle Shepperson, A Beka Book
