"Jesus Told The Wind To Be Quiet.."

So, We had a 'Back to School Bash' Tonight at FBC Pville, and it was really awesome.
A lot of people came, and a lot of people accepted Christ...Now, onto WHY they accepted Christ!
The message was by Kacy Benson and it was about storms that happen in our lives.
Mark 4: 35-40
Jesus had taught parables earlier in the day, and then decided to go to the other side of the river with His disciples.
Jesus got on the boat and fell fast asleep, meanwhile, a storm was brewing...The waves were coming up over the boat, and the boat was about to go under (Like the whale watching tour in San Fran ;D...Long story..). The disciples go over to Jesus and wake Him up...They're freaking out because they are about to die, this storm is about to overtake them and their boat.
Jesus got up and TOLD the wind to be quiet, and everything became still. WOW....That is crazy! I probably would have just sat there with my mouth wide open. Imagine what the disciples were thinking!

Jesus turned to them and said "Why are you so afraid? Do you STILL have no faith?"

This is like the little 'storms' we have in our own lives, we get so caught up in everything sometimes, that everything feels like it's crashing down, and sometimes, it really is. But, if you ask God for help, He will come in and tell the 'wind' to be quiet, and everything will become still.
