When I go to church on Sunday, I hate being late. Not because I like being on time but because I hate to miss the worship. To sing together in Holy expectancy is something reserved for Sunday mornings but also to sing on one’s own is an act of worship and praise to God.
Here’s an example of another storm. This time Jesus was nowhere to be seen. Well, not at first anyway. Then he was walking on water and asked Peter to have the faith to walk to him. I often wonder when Peter started to sink, Jesus rescued him but how did they both get back to the boat?
What Jesus didn’t say here was “Let’s go to the middle of the lake and drown.” There was a storm coming and he told the disciples the destination – the other side of the lake. So when the storm came Jesus was asleep. Sometimes I would wonder, during my storm, if Jesus was sleeping. Why was the storm still raging around me?
