The calming of the storm by Jesus at sea is a powerful metaphor for what it means to be dependent on god. Life can be chaotic, and only God can make sense of it.

In the end, faith conquers fear. Jesus reminds us that with God, nothing is impossible.

Dear god, when I encounter disruption and upset, calm my mind and heart. May your Spirit make me docile and confident in the face of difficulty. Faith conquers fear.
