Wind and Wave Obey

“Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea.  And there was a great calm.”  Matthew 8:26

Sometimes when I’m in a stormy situation, I find it’s my pride that rises high and starts whipping around.

Jesus, please rebuke that pride in me and restore the calm of a humble heart.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Sinking in a Sea of Self

Internal storms rock me
in ways external ones cannot
– chaotic waves of rebellion
– stiff winds of pride
drive me to the bottom
until You speak truth
– quietly diminishing
– my sea of self.


  1. I can’t think of anything to say that would do this justice.

  2. I’m with Mike on this one. Peace, Linda

  3. I’m glad that you understood. God bless you!

  4. You know about storms . . .thanks for understanding and encouraging me to go through mine! 🙂

  5. With me it is both pride and fear. Thank you for the words of wisdom.

    Love, Theresa

  6. Yes, Theresa, that’s so true about fear. I’ve been reading a blog this week, The Best Days Of My Life, that is dealing with fear. During storms, fear is often very present! God bless you!

  7. you have just hit me
    in a very good way.
    why cuddle the turmoil inside
    when i can invite God to reside

  8. Oh that is so true of what we do . . .cuddle the turmoil! Loved that! God bless you! 🙂

  9. Just had to come back to this actual post.
