Don’t You Care?

Mark 4 tells a story of a wild storm that came out of nowhere one night while Jesus and his disciples were out on the water. Jesus was sleeping, and the disciples screamed “DON’T YOU CARE? DON’T YOU CARE THAT WE’RE GOING TO DROWN?” and I get why they questioned God in that moment, and I get why they were fearful, and I also never want to forget how Jesus responded. He woke up, told the storm to stop, watched the wind die down + waves become still, and then he asked his friends why they didn’t trust him.

When the world is out of control, God isn’t. When all signs point to a sinking ship, our greatest comfort and rescue will always be in Jesus. He hasn’t forgotten about us.
