“Learn to take minibreaks from the world, finding a place to be still in My Presence and listen to my voice.” from Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence
“When the storms of life overtake us, we often respond as if God does not exist or does not care. Jesus rebuked the disciples for their failure to recognize His presence, protection, and power, not for their human tendency to fear.” from Henry T. Blackaby’s Experiencing God
It is easy to judge the disciples for their lack of faith. Afterall, Jesus sat in their boat! How could He be more present?
Yet, why do I panic in the middle of life-storms? Afterall, the Holy Spirit sits within my soul! How could He be more present?
