We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls. Mother Teresa
Jesus Stills a Storm
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. (Mark 4:35-39 NRSV)
Are you looking for peace in your life? Do you have stress that you can’t seem to shake? Each of us, at one point or another, has felt burdened by life. God cares for you and wants to take your burdens light. Offer your cares and concerns to God and you may find the peace that Jesus offers. Why not join us in Bible Study one Thursday or Sunday morning! There, you will find Christians who support each other and look to Jesus to guide us and to continue to bring us peace. We would love to welcome you!
