FINAL DESTINATION

 18 When Jesus saw the crowd around him, he instructed his disciples to cross to the other side of the lake. Matthew 8:18 

Jesus told his disciples we’re going to the other side of  the lake,Then Jesus went to take a nap.Jesus knew the storm was ahead and yet he went to sleep! I totally love this picture Jesus is as calm as can be,as I should be when the storms of life arise.Jesus did not have any fear or wondering about what to do! The storm hits  the boat and it’s being tossed  up and down from one side to the other.Waves are pounding the boat and yet Jesus is at rest,what a beautiful picture! On the other hand the disciples are frantic with fear,even after all of the miracles they’ve seen Jesus do,they panic.Just as we do,even after all he  has brought us through,we panic in the midst of the storm. It’s as if our brains are defected the way we tend to forget  what Jesus  did yesterday to pull us through. Even though we know Jesus has given us peace and a way out before,still we doubt. I praise and thank God for the Holy Spirit and the way he speaks to me.Our trials and tribulations are not permanent ,thank you Jesus and they are working for our benefit.We must learn to listen to  God,and not our flesh or the devil.God’s words are full of power,and when he says we’re going to the other side,that’s what he means.There is nothing here,nothing in our pass or present that can stop our Final Destination,which is heaven. 

Scripture: Matthew 8:23~27  

Isaiah 43:1~3  

 Heavenly Father help us to settle down and keep looking to you,knowing that you’re in the boat with us and that you will get us safely to our final destination.No mattter what we endure here.Help us Father to be calm in our storms and give you praise for you alone are worthy.Amen 

Love in Christ Pat

  1. Patty Ann,

    We have so much to learn about the awesome power and love of our Lord and Savior…. Jesus has shown us what we should be like in all situations, and yet, we continue with our worldly perceptions…. Thank you for this truthful reminder.

  2. Hi Pat,
    Yes to stay calm during storms really challenge our faith… Recently God reminded me to give thanks for any storms in life.. Until they come, all people&families look pretty much the same. Only when storms rage, it become clear which life&families r built on the rock of TRUTH, n’ which ones are built on the sand (Matt 7:24).. stay strong by the grace of our Lord.. can’t wait til the day He returns! 🙂

    God bless u abundantly Pat! *hug

  5. Hi Patty Ann, what a great reminder of the fact that nothing is going to happen to us in the storms of life when the Master of the storm is in the boat with us!! Believers need to trust that God will always be bigger than the wind and the waves of trouble that come against them.

  6. I decided to venture out into the blog world and ended up here! Thank you Pat for being such a vibrant and encouraging voice in a world that makes it difficult to hear anything at all.

    I would have been the disciple who poured a bucket of water over Jesus’head to wake Him up during the storm! Thankfully we serve a loving and forgiving God!
