“Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat.
But Jesus was sleeping.”
Matthew 8:24 New Living Translation

On the day that I took this picture, I was being chased by a storm. It started snowing on my way to Westcliffe, Colorado and things didn’t look good to the north so I headed south. I stopped a few times to snap some pics and then climb back into the car and took off ahead of the storm.

I drove over three hundred miles that day and did a good job of staying out of the storm until I got home. A wall of snow hit me once I reached Colorado Springs.

The storm had arrived.

The question is not IF the storms will come but WHEN. You might be heading into a life storm, in the middle of one or on the other side of that storm. And you’re thinking that Jesus is asleep.

With the disciples you cry out, “don’t you care?!” (Mark 4:38) We’re pretty self-focused when we’re riding out a storm.

In truth, Jesus was with the disciples and he did care. In truth, Jesus is with you and does care even when you are riding out the storms.
