Today's Good News


4/26                 Matthew 14:22-24 

Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that his disciples get back into the boat and cross to the other side of the lake, while he sent the people home. After sending them home, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night fell while he was there alone.  24 Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. 


Life has a way of getting away from us.  Too often we focus in the immediate chaos and forget that for us to succeed we need to focus on Jesus.  Jesus put them into the boat and would be with them all the way to where he sent them.  They were focused on the storm and not Jesus’ instructions.  Follow the Lord.  When it gets crazy following Jesus then stop and spend time with him and he will get you through the crisis every time.  Jesus loves you.
