Peacefulness- Day 7 (One Day My Soul Opened Up)

What do we do when we are stuck in a troubling situation with nowhere to run? Maybe, like the disciples who were stuck in a life-threatening storm, we run to Jesus (Mark 4:35-41). Sometimes, however, we may try to bail ourselves out of trouble by seeking revenge, slandering the one who has caused our problem, or just cowering fearfully in the corner as we sink into despair.

We need to learn from the disciples who fled to Jesus as their only hope. He may not bail us out immediately, but remembering that He is in our boat makes a difference! Thankfully, He is always with us in the storms of life, saying things like “Peace, be still!” (v.39). So, look for Him in your storm and let Him fill you with the peace that comes from knowing He is near.

Lord, teach us to run to You in the midst of trouble.
Forgive us for trying to bail ourselves out, and lead
us to the peace of trusting Your wisdom and ultimate
deliverance. Thank You that You will help us!
Make Jesus your first option when the storms of life threaten you.

I am a Native New Yorker! I found my passion in writing again when I realized we as women of color want to be ALL to everyone and minimum to ourselves, embracing our natural born nurturer instincts. And yet we hide behind a "Veil" of hurt, pain, disappointment and call it "Strength". Unveiled by Dominique is a movement for women of color to tear the the veil and reveal our true beauty and strength. There is Power in Transparency!
