Mark 4:37-40 (NRSV) – A great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. 38 But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” 39 He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. 40 He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?”
When the lashing waves of fear and doubt Threaten to topple your helpless little boat Reach out to Him who rules the sea At whose command - Peace! Be still! Waves are hushed, raging seas, calmed
When you find yourself helpless Faced with a sea of sinking realities With an army of challenges in hot pursuit Trust Him who makes a way Where there seems to be no way
When what you have is pitiably little As against the multitude of your needs Offer to Him your five loaves and two fish Knowing that He can bless and multiple Satisfying the needs and hunger of many
For He the One faithful and true Yes, He the same God remains Yesterday, today and forever So, friends as you ride tempestuous seas Your Lord and Master truly, is He?
