Peace, Be Still
There is an awesome story in the Bible about Jesus Christ and His apostles. They're all traveling together in a boat. Jesus was asleep in the back of the ship when a storm started. It was such a rough storm that the disciples were scared for their lives. They woke up the Savior and asked "carest thou not that we perish?" (Mark 4:38). The apostles saw no hope of getting through the storm. Unless Christ did something about it, they were going to perish. What Christ did next should be of great comfort to all of us. "He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm"(Mark 4:39).
