The disciples of Jesus were afraid when they were caught up in the storm. Jesus was in the boat with them. There would always be persons, circumstances in life that are out of our control. Life can be terrifying and frustrating when things get out of our control. And like the disciples of Jesus we may react in fear. But when we look intently, we would realize that God is always with us, until the end of time. as Christians our greatest resolve should come from the ability to respond to storms in life with faith and not to react in fear.
