Storms

Wow – there have been quite a few storms blowing through town lately! I love to sit on my porch and listen, watching God’s very own fireworks display! Even if you go to watch the Fourth of July fireworks this weekend – I believe that God’s show is more spectacular! Watching storms is something that I have done throughout my life. I remember being a kid and sitting with my entire family on our patio. Together, we’d watch the lightning, count the thunder claps, and watch the rain fall on a warm, muggy summer night! Those are great memories that I love to think about. I hope that you appreciate watching God’s power at work in nature!

A Moment To Praise For Kids 6.29.21 in Scripture

There is a particular storm from a Bible story that I bet you remember! Take a minute and read about it here:

Bible Gateway passage: Mark 4:35-41 – International Children’s Bible

Jesus Stops a Storm – That evening, Jesus said to his followers, “Come with me across the lake.” He and the followers left the people there. They went in the boat that Jesus was already sitting in. There were also other boats with them. A very strong wind came up on the lake. The waves began coming over the sides and into the boat. It was almost full of water. Jesus was at the back of the boat, sleeping with his head on a pillow. The followers went to him and woke him. They said, “Teacher, do you care about us? We will drown!” Jesus stood up and commanded the wind and the waves to stop. He said, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind stopped, and the lake became calm.

Jesus’ disciples were scared because they were far out in the water and thought that Jesus didn’t know or care about how they felt. They thought that they were in the fight of their lives and their chances of surviving were not very good. While they were panicking, what was Jesus doing? He was sleeping!

The story ends with Jesus waking up and calming the storm. He also calmed the disciples’ fears too!

Storms in Our Lives

There are times in our own lives that things aren’t going the way we want them to go. All of our plans get shifted and changed just like the waters of a stormy sea. No matter what goes on, I want you to always remember that Jesus is just a quick prayer away from you. He has already made a promise to you that He would help you through any kind of trial or storm. Remember to call on His name and trust that He will be there for you. I know that He will never fail you!
