Peace in the Storm

faith in action

A squall surprised the crew, who feared the injured calf would sink the boat. Instead, he slept peacefully through the storm.

“And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.”
Matthew 8:24-26 KJV

welcome to the world

“We still don’t know how, but Farmer Jones delayed Jeb’s lumber shipment for rebuilding his barn. We had no shelter for one of the cows that gave birth in a rainstorm. Cream used a blanket from her bed to keep them warm.”

“And there was a great cry of the people and of their wives against their brethren the Jews.

For there were that said, We, our sons, and our daughters, are many: therefore we take up corn for them, that we may eat, and live.

Some also there were that said, We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards, and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth.

There were also that said, We have borrowed money for the king’s tribute, and that upon our lands and vineyards.”
Nehemiah 5:1-4 KJV

Carest Thou Not?

Perfect storm.

“And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.

And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?

And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.”
Mark 4:37-39 KJV

Rock Wreck

One moonless night, a fishing trawler ran aground, and June experienced a snapshot of her future as she joined the community in helping the survivors.

“Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.

But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.”
John 11:9, 10 KJV

Confounded

got pie?

As they settled into their new community, the search for F.B. remained elusive. When the Sheriff refused a piece of her Raspberry Peach Peace Pie, she knew his sniffles meant more than a simple cold.

“Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.”
Psalm 35:4 KJV

Bitter Roots

As a new bride in Agate Beach, Oregon, Susanna resented the Sheriff’s long absences, even if he was tracking justice.

“But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.

Forsake me not, O Lord: O my God, be not far from me.”
Psalm 38:19-21 KJV

Mighty Hand

Light through the storm.

“And he spake unto the children of Israel, saying, When your children shall ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean these stones?

Then ye shall let your children know, saying, Israel came over this Jordan on dry land.

For the Lord your God dried up the waters of Jordan from before you, until ye were passed over, as the Lord your God did to the Red sea, which he dried up from before us, until we were gone over:

That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the Lord, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the Lord your God for ever.”
Joshua 4:21-24 KJV
