A calm feeling in the midst of a storm

There are days when i feel the weight on my shoulders.  On those days, i find myself prayer just a little more harder and listen just a little more attentively to the voice of God.   On those days, I need (trust) the Lord to get me thru to the other side.

Today is definitely not one of those days.  Yes, I have quite a few uncertainty in my life and yes, I find myself at times alone and confused.  But today I have a very say calm about life and about myself.  I have felt it before and I know that its a feeling from the Holy Spirit.  In my heart i feel that “everything will be alright for i am in control”.  I acknowledge that and thank you lord for it.  In Jesus Name, Amen -PJSLB

 

Mark 4:35-41 New International Version (NIV)

Jesus Calms the Storm

35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”

39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

The storm that didn’t come.

  
Life is full of unexpected events.  No matter how “prepared” you are, life can (and will) throw you a curve ball.  This was the case for me yesterday.  The southern USA was experiencing strong storms with the possibility of tornadoes.  I was nervous going to bed because the forecast called for severe storms to arrive around 1:00 am.  I said a quick prayer asking the lord to bring peace into my life.  It was then that a feeling came into my spirit. It was just in me to now “relax”.  I was no longer worried and it was just placed in my heart that everything will be alright.  In the end, the storms passed and we slept thru the night.  

Keep God close an you will be embolden to not fear anything on this earth.  Be safe everyone and be comforted that our Lord has risen from the dead.
