Peace Releases Stress

If you can dream it, you can do it. — Walt Disney

And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more. — Erica Jong.

You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle. –Paulo Cohelo

Stress VS. Peace

Twenty years ago I seldom even heard the word “stress.” Now, it seems I hear it everyday from young and old alike. Are we a stressed-out generation? Is the pace of our lives destroying the peace of our lives? This story is intended to be a gentle reminder to us all.

One night, at the Savior’s command, the apostles took their ship and with Him set across the Sea of Galilee. Being weary, Jesus went to the stern of the boat and was soon asleep on a pillow.

An unusually violent storm arose, blowing down from the surrounding mountains. Huge waves broke over the boat filling it with water until it was on the verge of sinking.

The disciples were terrified. Coming to the Master, they awoke Him saying, “Master, carest thou not that we perish?”

The Savior arose immediately and rebuked the wind saying unto the sea, “Peace, be still!” Instantly, the wind abated and there followed a great calm. The disciples were astonished at Him. They knew He had power, but because their fear had over-ruled their faith, they failed to comprehend how far-reaching His power actually was.

Now, with us, if He can calm as angry sea, surely He can calm a troubled heart. He is the one and only source of lasting peace. So much so is He the giver of this great gift that Isaiah calls Him the “Prince of Peace” — a prince to whom I would hope we would be subjects at any sacrifice. Thanks to Glen Rawson for sharing this story.
