A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” (Mark 4:37,38)
Jesus was crazy with love for you
and I am crazy with love for you.
How many sunsets I have longingly gazed upon
seeking your heart,
Lord, the storms of life have taken me away
from the vast and quiet night sky
where I met you.
Help me find you again,
asleep in the stern of this small boat,
while the wind and the sea rage.
