Put yourself in the boat with Jesus and his disciples. Pastor Heather Cowie reflects on the reactions to the storm as depicted in the painting by Rembrandt. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Rembrandt_Christ_in_the_Storm_on_the_Lake_of_Galilee.jpg

That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”
He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
Mark 4:35-41

What if? What if the moment you're now living is meant for more? What if what you just did over the last hour was supposed to have held much more meaning, reality, and truth? What if God wants everything you do to matter more; everywhere you are to be more significant; every second you live to hold more eternity?

Often I think that this is exactly what God wants for us. I think its what he's made us for; to know his presence, to experience his being, to be embraced by his love in all things.
