‘Why are you so frightened?
Have you still no faith?’
– Mark 4:40
With all the troubles and tribulations that we are facing, it is easy to worry, to be afraid, or to be terrified. Yet the Holy Scripture is replete with encouragement that the Lord of the universe is the same Lord of our life. He who calmed the sea in the gospel is the same Lord who can soothe us today and ask: “Why are you frightened?
Our God is good all the time. He is not asleep. He is always there ready to calm the waves and strong winds that come in our earthly journey. We just have to pray and believe.
