“And he said to them, ‘Why are you so frightened, you men of little faith?.”

Matthew 8:23-27

The disciples had Jesus in their boat, but they were not immune to fear of feeling lost or dying at sea. The strong winds and waves frightened them. So too, can the currents of our lives frighten us sometimes – causing us to feel at lost and afraid. Things may not always go as we planned them to be. But the disciples show us what to do in these times – and that is to call upon the Lord (even with the little faith they may have had).

Jesus understands our fears, worries, and struggles. But he also knows the plans that he has for our lives and he is faithful to his promises. We only need to trust in his faithfulness and believe that he is stronger than our weaknesses. We are not alone and do not have to face life’s challenges alone. Therefore in these times, let us always first call upon Jesus and invite him into our storms that he may calm them.  We pray also for the grace to trust in Jesus, more and more each day.
