Bible Verse Of The Month - August

Mark 4: 39 

Jesus ‘rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.’

Sometimes our lives seem full of storms. Whether it’s because of tornadoes of over-work or over-tiredness, or a deluge of health or money problems, or tempestuous relationships… you and I can feel overwhelmed by the storms life throws at us.

Jesus quietened the physical storm that threatened to swamp the disciples’ boat on the Sea of Galilee. This same Jesus can also bring ‘Peace’ into the tempest-tossed boats of our lives today.

During the month of August, then, shall we take Christ’s words, ‘Peace! Be still!’ as our motivational phrase and basis of our daily prayer:
Lord Jesus, please help me to be still enough to hear Your voice above the storms around me. Please speak Your peace into my life each day, and enable me to be a calm peace-bringer to others.
 
The Revd Mary Barr.
