Mark 4:36=39 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. (37) And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. (38) And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? (39) And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
As the storms are forecast on TV we see them categorized.  Hurricanes start as tropical depressions, become tropical storms and then sometimes build to hurricanes from Category 1 to Category 5, with a 5 being the strongest.  They classify tornadoes from F-1 to F-5 and then there are the straight line sustained winds.
I sort of understand all this terminology but I also know one other thing, When the hen house blows away, no matter what you call the storm you have still lost your chickens.
I have seen reports where psychologist try to categorize the amount of stress on a person through certain stressful situations.  I'm not sure how scientific this is but I do know that to the person going through life's storms, the one they are going through now is the one that matters most.
We all react differently to the storms of life and some are more prepared to face the storms of others.  Whatever the storm you might face just remember that Jesus is the One who can calm the storm.
Please feel free to contact me by email at with questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know.  Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus.  I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
