The scene at the bottom of our garden a few days ago. The movement of the sea and the clouds interweaving and creating an ever changing scene. To be honest it is a story in itself; every moment .
It’s a kind of mirror into our own souls. The constant movement of what I call an ‘inner tide’. Moving us here, there and everywhere. We cannot avoid it because it is woven into inner being. What we can do is to acknowledge the presence of this movement and tide.
There are moments in the Gospels where we read of the times when Jesus calmed a physical sea. He took control of a seemimgly hopeless situation and brought peace and tranquilty. We each of us reach moments where there is apparently no obvious way out or through a situation. In the account of the calming of the sea in Mark’s Gospel, Jesus utters these words after his action caused the storm to abate; “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
Even when the action or answer is right in front of us we can find ourselves lost in our own thoughts; looking for answers in the wrong place. Take time today, even if it is only a minute or two, to hear the words of Jesus in your soul. His hand constantly reaches out to us and never grows tired.
The Lord bless you and keep you; now and always.
