Be Still! March 18, 2020

“Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations,     I am exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10

Read this passage quietly to yourself. 

“ On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him.A great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. 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?” 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. He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?” And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”                                                      Mark 4:35-41 

Now, reread it again, slowly and out loud to yourself. 

If someone else is around, read it to each other, so you can each listen hear the words, hear the story. 

How does this passage speak to you today? 

Spend a few minutes in prayer, with open hands. Surrendering the emotions you felt, asking God to quiet your storm and fill you with peace and calm. 

It Is Well with My Soul

                                    Audrey Assad

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

It is well
With my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul

It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
