Peace in the Storm
Right under my feet I saw a mixture of a huge boulder holding and tree limb and right in front of the boulder were two ducks in a pool of water surrounded by all that chaos. Seemingly oblivious to the danger all about them, those ducks just went about their business of swimming back and forth while feeding from the water.
Obviously, the ducks flew in and would fly out, but their presence reminded me of the Scriptures. The event is told of the Disciples in a boat in a storm while Jesus was asleep in the boat. When the Disciples felt threatened by the storm, they began crying out to Jesus for help, being afraid of the present danger.
When the storms of life invade our peaceful world and corrupt our lifestyle, if Jesus is in the boat with us, He makes it easier to swim in the calm of His peace than to fret about the dangers that surround us. With Him there with us, He will either give us peace in the storm, or calm the storm.
