Jesus said “let us go across to the other side.” 

Mark 4:35-41

On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”

Jesus said “let us go across to the other side.”

2020

The storms came

Loss of jobs

Loss of family members

Lack of social contact

Loneliness

Storms

Jesus said “let us go across to the other side.”

Be still my soul

He promised us

He instructed us to cross to the other side

Trust

My soul trust in Him

He is the author and the finisher of our faith

Nothing is impossible for Him

Vision

He gave me a vision

A dream

I saw it!

Yet right now

It all seems so far-fetched…

So out of reach!

Trust

Jesus said “let us go across to the other side.”

Yes

I will cross to the other side

Will storms come?

Will I face opposition?

Loss?

Discouragement?

Threats?

Maybe

But

Jesus said “let us go across to the other side.”

That is all I heard

Trust in the Lord my soul!

We are crossing to the other side

We are going to finish strong

Jesus is Lord

Selah

See you on the other side!
