Experience the great calm of Jesus in life’s storms

You are probably familiar with the passage of Scripture in Mark 4 where Jesus had been teaching crowds of people all day on the shores of Galilee. When evening came, he told his disciples that he wanted to go to the other side of the sea. They climbed into the boat and were far away from shore when a storm blew in. As you may remember, Jesus was asleep in the stern of the boat and didn’t wake up, even when the waves began to fill their vessel. 

The disciples woke Jesus saying, “‘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” (Mark 4:38–39). Yet even after the sea calmed, the disciples were still afraid. 

Isn’t that like all of us when we are faced with life’s storms? There will always be times when our faith seems insufficient for our fears. Faith can be fragile, especially in the middle of a crisis.

So how can you be ready for the inevitable storms of life? 

Janet Denison wrote her book of devotionals, A Great Calm, to help you draw near to the One who can increase your faith and calm your soul, even if the storms continue. And it’s why we would love to put a copy in your hands.

A Great Calm is a book of short devotionals meant to be read while in the midst of life’s storms, or to prepare for life’s storms. 

Each short devotional highlights a characteristic of God, a litany of Scripture that will sustain you in your suffering, as well as a prayer to help you draw near to the One who is able to rebuke the winds and calm the seas.

So please order your copy below — and thank you for your donation to help create more biblical resources, grounded in God’s truth, and make them accessible to anyone who wants to study and know God’s word.

May God use the biblical truth in the pages of this devotional to provide you with a great calm and the strength to trust the perfection of Christ for your greater needs.
