RUN/REST Day 37
Sometimes, after all the running, you just need a good nap.
📖 𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗: Mark 4:35-40
Jesus slept. That’s right, Jesus took a nap. On a boat. In a storm! What does this show you about Jesus’ humanity?
Think about the circumstances in this story. There was a violent storm. The disciples were experienced fishermen and probably faced a lot of crazy storms., so the fact that they had no chill shows that this was a BIG storm. ⛈ But, in the middle of the roaring waves and crashing winds, Jesus showed the disciples that he had the power to calm the storm and bring peace. What is the storm, stress, or chaos that you find yourself in the middle of right now? How can Jesus words, “Silence! Be still!” encourage you? Write a prayer to Jesus, telling him everything about the storm you find yourself in right now. Tell him about the stress that feels like waves crashing over you and that you’re struggling to keep your head above water and swim through it. Thank Jesus that he gives peace in the middle of the storm, and that he does not leave you or turn his back on you.
