Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake,so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke Him, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!" He replied "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, " What kind of man is this, even the winds and the waves obey him!" (Matt. 8 vs 24-27 NIV)





A sudden noise, Crash! Boom!
I awake with a start!
Jumping out of bed,
my eyelids slide apart.
I open up my curtains to see in the
the strange night's glow,
lawn chairs and debris thrown
about by the wind's flow.
My body is taken by such
a fright,as I see the eerie green-gray
darkness split by lightning's
light.
I tell myself, "There is no reason
to be scared."
But even then I can feel the
prince of the air's stare.
But then the Holy Spirit
comes to my spirit and says
"Be serene, remember the boat-men
with the Nazarene."
I smile gently as
the storm rages until,
I come forth clearly
saying, "In the Name of Jesus,
peace, be still.".

Great job. I like how you gave us an example for that verse.
