Ponder: The tag line from the Children's Defense Fund, “The sea is so wide and my boat is so small,” has always haunted. What flimsy protection our modes of traveling through life offer us! Can we really trust Jesus against the wind, the waves, the storms of life?

Pray: Sweet Jesus, wake up! Sit with us in the boat and help us to be not afraid, but to wonder at the sea's largeness, at our own smallness, at Your goodness.
