Last year, I was very afraid. I was afraid because I watched a very scary movie with my roommate and some friends. After the movie was finished, I went to bed. But I dreamed about the scary movie. When I woke up, I was still afraid. Every time I closed my eyes, I remembered parts of the movie.
Since that time, I have thought about my experience with fear. I probably should not have watched that movie. But for sure, when I became afraid, I should have turned to God to calm me and help me not be afraid.
In our Bible Reading today, Jesus and His disciples were in a boat on the lake. A storm came up and the waves covered the boat. Jesus’ disciples became very afraid. Jesus said, “Why are you afraid? You don’t have enough faith” (verse 26). Then Jesus calmed the wind and the storm.
Maybe you will be afraid today. Remember that God is with you. Let Him comfort you and give you His peace.
