A few thoughts about storms from Mark chapter 6:

- Jesus LED them to the storm (Mark 6:45, 47)
- Shepherds lead (Jn 10)
- Jesus SEES them in the storm (Mark 6:48)
- Jesus CAME to them IN the storm (Mark 6:48)
- We often DON'T RECOGNIZE Jesus in the middle of our storms (Mark 6:48-50)
- Jesus SPEAKS in the storm and the disciples RECOGNIZED his voice (Mark 6:50)
- Sheep know His voice (Jn 10)
- Jesus gives them a choice: COURAGE or Fear...choose well (Mark 6:50)
- The storm pales when Jesus ENTERS THE BOAT! (Mark 6:51)
- Sometimes we don't gain insights from the miracles; but we tend to remember the storms (Mark 6:52)
I visit these verses often in my storms...and I ask Him for the faith to choose courage.
Living all of life before the face of God...
