And yet when the seas of life get rough, then all of a sudden, we call out for help from the Lord!
A squall came down on the lake so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples. In fear and amazement, they asked one another, “Who is this who commands the winds and the water, and they obey him.” (Luke 8:23-25, NIV)
