Seeing Your Life through the Lens of the Gospels - Mark 4:35-41

Read 147 Times

Mark 4:35-41

The image of a boat in a stormy sea is a symbol of life in difficult times and is an image of the inner turmoil, anxiety and high emotions we then experience. Has your faith in the presence of the risen Jesus been a help to you? Recall the memory and give thanks.

The image can also be applied to a family, a community, a parish, or any other group. Perhaps a ‘Jesus-person' in the group came to your assistance and calmed you down? Remember people who have had a gift of bringing you peace in troubled situations.

The significance of miracles in the gospels is that they show Jesus as one who brings God's power to bear on human need and suffering. Have there been times when you have been a channel for this healing power of God, holding a crying child in your arms, calming the anxiety of a friend, or being a peacemaker in a group to which you belong?
