Somehow, Jesus slept through a gale and crashing waves until the Disciples woke Him in fear of perishing and, worse yet, fear that the Lord didn’t care. Calming the storm left them in awe, although they still lacked understanding. Fortunately, the Lord has patience, sowing the seeds of His Word to take root, grow, and yield more than enough to share. Following His example of patience takes cultivated faith because we cannot understand exactly how God’s plan will blossom in our lives. When erosion of our faith occurs, do we seek to add some fertile topsoil through prayer and efforts to become more well-grounded in His Word?
