"Peace! Be still!"

Wow...So I have not posted on here in WAY too long! Life has kinda taken control of my time! But I feel the Spirit calling and I need to start blogging again. I am sitting here, 11:00 at night, reading for an assignment in my Bible class. The past two weeks have been the worst weeks I have had in a VERY long time. Yet I feel this peace...I am reading in Mark for my Bible class, and I just read about the storm on the sea where Jesus was sleeping and his disciples called out to Him wondering whether He was just going to let them die! And Jesus woke up and command that the waves and wind BE STILL. I have been going through a lot, and I know there are others out there who are going through a lot, my close friends and family are going through a lot, and here is a word of encouragement for YOU. Jesus had an amazing amount of power and authority in commanding that the wind and water be still. Because of Jesus, and through Him, we can have this same power and authority to command the storms in our lives to be still. Not that the wind and water completely disappear, but that we have PEACE while riding the waves and letting the wind move us forward. Jesus rebuked the waves and wind saying, "Peace! Be still!" -Mark 4:39 You can overcome the circumstances that you are going through right now. They do NOT have control of you. Ask Jesus to give you the victory and to command those waves and winds to, "Peace! Be still!"
