God, with us

I love a good thunderstorm – the crashing and cracking of the elements, it makes me feel alive. Unless I am outside. Thunderstorms are less fun when you are outside.

Imagine being the disciples in Mark 4:35-41 (http://bit.ly/2lIUGSS), in a boat, on the sea during a thunderstorm! They really thought they were all going to die, and when they look around for Jesus, they find him asleep!

There are two things I really love about this story:
1) Of all the places Jesus could have been, he was right there in the boat with the disciples – even in the storm.
2) Even though the disciples were full of doubt and fear, they still called out to Jesus to help them.
