Calming the Storm

There is a silent storm moving inside of me. I know it is just a combination of nervousness, anxiety, and excitement. This morning my Bible verse told me in Mark 4:39 that Jesus will calm the storms of my life. How appropriate this is for me today. If Jesus can calm the storm for His disciples two thousand years ago, He certainly can do it for me and for you. Instead of tossing and turning and rushing around like I have been doing lately, I just need to look to His divine protection and remember the grace that has brought me this far. Jesus is the calmer of the storm on the Sea of Galilee and is the calmer of the storms in our lives today. I will give my feelings of fear to Jesus because I know that fear is the opposite of faith. Worrying about things is wasted energy. He will grant me His peace that passes all understanding. . .
