Matthew 8:24 ” Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.”

Most of life’s trials and tribulations seldom, if ever, announce themselves prior to happening.  They don’t send us a “Save the Date” card in the mail or place themselves on the calendar…they happen without warning.  As it was in this verse, a violent tempest had come up suddenly and was threatening to capsize the boat the disciples and Jesus were in.  But while the disciples focused on the waves and wind…Jesus was sleeping through the storm.  In Matthew 11:28  Jesus tells us to, “Come to Me, all you who are weary and heavy burdened, and I will give you rest.”  The question then is… Are we focused on the storm, or our Savior?  And can we sleep through the storm?
