Daily Devotion from the Church Health Center – Mark 4:35-40

Thursday, June 21, 2012 – Proper 7/Ordinary 12, Year B

Mark 4:35-40On that day, when evening had come, Jesus said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.”  And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was.  Other boats were with him.  And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped.  But Jesus was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?”  He woke up rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace!  Be still!”  Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm.  He said to them, “Why are you afraid?  Have you still no faith?”

Serving God faithfully can mean venturing into uncharted waters.  While the going can get tough, we are reminded again that God is always with us.

Prayer: Loving God, thank you for the example of Jesus calming the storm to remind us of your steadfast presence in our lives.  AMEN.
