Fix My Eyes, Lie Down, and Rest

The storm came out of nowhere. The waves which once gently lapped the edges of the wooden boat were now crashing wildly over the sides. The wind ripped one of the sails, rendering it useless. We knew there was no hope, and began crying. Some calling for help to the heavens. Some weeping quietly inside.

Then we saw Jesus. He was sleeping, so quietly in the corner of the boat, totally unconcerned with the storm. We awoke him, terrified. He saw our fear, heard our cries. He had mercy on our unbelief. Peace, be still! The waves were quiet instantly at His command. The wind ceased without a moment’s hesitation. The boat ceased its rocking. We fixed our eyes firmly on this One who controls all things. Hope, rest, peace all found in One Person, this Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ. We laid down and rested. He did the same, and we knew we would always be safe with Him.

The prescription I am ordering for myself for this week and the weeks to come: fix your eyes on Jesus, lie down, and rest. He is always in control. Praise to God! Love, Lisa

    • Yes, keeping our focus on Jesus is the only way to get through troubled times in our lives, as we have seen these past 7 months! May we all keep “walking out in Faith,” because there will be more storms and we need to stay in the boat with The One who can keep us safe!

  1. Yes, the only way to get through troubled times, like we have been experiencing these past 7 months, is to keep our focus on our Lord. There will be many more storms in our lives, so we must keep the faith and stay in the boat with The One who will keep us safe! God bless you, Lisa!
