John 6:16-20, And when even was now come, his disciples went down to the sea, and entered into a ship, and went over the sea to Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew. So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the water, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid. But he said unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
Jesus came to the disciples in the mist of a dangerous storm. I have two friends in the mist of a storm. Both have been given a short time to live. They both live in Oklahoma City and they’ve been placed in Assisted Living Facilities!
I do understand their spirits are high during this time. One will be gone soon, and the other has been given six months to live. You might wonder how in the world can they be in a jolly mood knowing they’ll be gone soon. The reason being is Jesus is with them in the shadow of death.
Please pray for Rusty and Ed. Please pray for their wives, kids, grand kids and friends for it’s those who seem to struggle with the fact that their loved ones are dying! They’ll be home soon, in the midst of their Saviour. In this we find great comfort!
