Thought of the Day

I have started having a thought of the day that I share with some of my soldiers. For some reason, I feel like I am supposed to share yesterday's thought. Without further delay.

Today's thought comes from Mark 4:35-41
That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, "Let us go over to the other side." Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 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?" He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?" They were terrified and asked each other, "Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!"

We have no idea with tomorrow may hold. However, we know the one who holds tomorrow. He calmed the storms that day and he continues to calm storms today. I pray that we are like the disciples, going to God when life seems/is threatened. Don't be afraid or lose faith.
