After the storm! Luke 8:25

Hello everyone,
Looking at the situation from our prospective, it seems silly that the disciples had so little faith that they became scared for their lives during the storm especially with Jesus in the boat.  Luke 8:25 says, Then He asked them, "Where is your faith?"  Do we not do the exact same thing over and over again?  When we get caught in the storms of life, it is easy to think that God has lost control and that we're at the mercy of the winds of fate.  In reality, God is sovereign.  He controls the history of the world as well as our personal destiny.  Just as Jesus calmed the waves, He can calm whatever storm you may face.  This past week, it has been a thrill to be working from home but with that reward comes extra stress sometimes.  I've been going back and forth to work the last two days and am planning to do that over the next few weeks and that is truly a blessing.  Pray that I am able to let the stress of the moments I face dissolve as I trust Him to take care of those situations.  There is nothing that He doesn't want to handle before it becomes a situation where we let doubt get the best of us!  Remember that He is in the boat with you when the next storm hits and all you have to do is ask Him to calm it in Jesus name! 
Your brother in Christ,
