It Was A Dark And Stormy Night…

Mark 4:35-41

Charles Schultz will be missed, although he continues to live on in the characters of his comic strip 'Peanuts'. One of the more notable of those characters is Snoopy. As a would-be writer, he sits at his typewriter and begins with "It was a dark and stormy night…" From there the strip moves into some area of humor.

Storms in reality are not humorous at all. They can be frightening and dangerous, as well as destructive. In our text tonight, the disciples have entered into a ship to pass over the Sea of Galilee and find themselves in the midst of a storm.

(Mark 4:37) "And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full."

Tonight, I want to apply some thoughts concerning actual storms to personal storms we find ourselves in the midst. What is your storm? Family problems? Financial struggles? Trouble at work? Friends letting you down?

I. Thoughts about storms.

II. How To Get Through A Storm

Jesus is in the storm with us! He cares about us and He will get us through the storms!

(Mark 4:39) "And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm."
