Is God there in my problems and struggles?

One time Jesus disciples were facing a very real and big problem. They were in a boat crossing a lake when a large storm took place. It was so severe they felt that they might even drown!

The answer to their problems was nearby- it was Jesus- but he was asleep!

The disciples woke him, not really knowing that he could save them, yet he did just that.

Watch this event on video and consider problems you are facing. Can the storm be calmed?

Can you call out to Jesus to calm it?

MARK 4:35-41

Read how Jesus calms the storm

MARK 4: 35-41 (NIV)

35 On the evening of that same day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go across to the other side of the lake.” 36 So they left the crowd; the disciples got into the boat in which Jesus was already sitting, and they took him with them. Other boats were there too. 37 Suddenly a strong wind blew up, and the waves began to spill over into the boat, so that it was about to fill with water. 38 Jesus was in the back of the boat, sleeping with his head on a pillow. The disciples woke him up and said, “Teacher, don’t you care that we are about to die?”
39 Jesus stood up and commanded the wind, “Be quiet!” and he said to the waves, “Be still!” The wind died down, and there was a great calm. 40 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Why are you frightened? Do you still have no faith?”
41 But they were terribly afraid and began to say to one another, “Who is this man? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
