Luke 8:24 - The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Master, Master, we're going to drown!" He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm.
How can we find peace in the midst of the storms raging all around us? Whether it is the political realm or in our personal lives, it can bring us down into depression. There is a plan, though. Our world isn’t spinning on its axis alone. God holds our world together in the palm of his hands. So stop giving so much emphasis to what the media says and start to allow God to calm the storm in us even if everyone around us may be drowning in discouragement. But I need to heed my own advice. I need to find the courage to believe God’s in control and pass on that courage to those around me. Do you have trouble finding peace? How do you deal with all that’s happening in the world around us?
