Next time your heart sinks, your stomach flips, you strain at the oars, battling the wind and waves of life, don’t be afraid to cry out, as did the disciples, ‘Teacher, do you not care that [I am] perishing?’ And then open your ears. You might just hear, above the noise of your fear, Jesus speaking words of peace: ‘Peace! Be still!’ And you will know that your life is being saved.
