reset: to set again or anew
I love this picture for many reasons. First, I’m viewing it while on a relaxing vacation on the beach. Second, it’s such a cool picture of weather for this weather geek. Third, it’s a great visual of life over the past year or so.
This year has been full and ever changing but the biggest change: the decision to quit my job. At the end of April, I left my job, after nine years to enjoy and pursue a different path. To take a step towards resetting my life to serve others and hopefully make a greater impact. This reset is a huge step of faith but is full of hope for what God has in store.
Resetting…to listen to God’s next steps for me without the distractions of work.
Resetting…believing God’s command to not worry or fret.
Resetting…trusting God’s promises to provide for my needs.
As I look at this photo, there are many thoughts but the most important one: Jesus is Lord of the storm.
On that day, when evening came, He said to them, “Let us go over to the other side.” Leaving the crowd, they took Him along with them in the boat, just as He was; and other boats were with Him. And there arose a fierce gale of wind, and the waves were breaking over the boat so much that the boat was already filling up. Jesus Himself 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 got up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Hush, be still.” And the wind died down and it became perfectly calm. And He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” They became very much afraid and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?” Matthew 4:35-41
