Jesus Calms the Storm

I hardly ever work at the computer on Sundays - it is my sweet husbands only day off.  BUT I jsut had to post what I heard in church this morning.  It has so changed my attitude, calmed my soul, and refocused my vision.

Matthew 8:23 (rewritten as best as I can remember from today's sermon but you can listen here)

The disciples followed Jesus into a boat, remember that some were fishermen so they knew how to handle themselves at sea.  AS the winds picked up and things became worse, they looked around for Jesus and where was he but asleep.  They woke Him, and out of his sleep he basically said . . . be calm and went back to sleep.  As the disciples calmed, so did the environment.

Although there were an awful lot of people in the church today, this part of the sermon "was jsut for me". I have let the craziness of this process overshadow everything else.  I know in my head that His perfect timing is just that.  In fact, I just blogged about it and then turned like a child and fell back into my humanness - ugh!

Are we not so blessed that words spoken can so directly change our attitudes.  I am calm, He has this, I am good.
