January 24

My husband and I frequent a barrier island off the gulf coast of Florida. We were spending some time there, but decided to leave before a storm hit and spend the night on the mainland. It's a cozy little place but is only accessible by boat. We returned the next day and headed back over to the island. Once we got into the bay we started to feel like the disciples on the Sea of Galilee. The wind was whipping and the water was rough and our tiny little boat began to get tossed around. We were half way to the island before we thought that this may have been a bad idea. We made it, but not before getting drenched! During the storm on the Sea of Galilee the disciples were frightened even though Jesus was in the boat with them. He asked them, "where is your faith?" When things get rough and you feel like you're being tossed around like a tiny boat on a big sea, remember that Jesus is in your boat.

He said to them, "Where is your faith?" And they were afraid, and they marveled, saying to one another, "Who then is this, that he commands even winds and water, and they obey him?" Luke 8:25
