Send Me the Pillow
Mark, chapter four, verses 37 and 38: "And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, 'Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?'"
When I was a boy, I remember an old country song. It was called "Send Me the Pillow that You Dream On." I suppose, in some way, it speaks to you and I about longing, love and rest. Though in the storm, Jesus had total confidence in the love, the keeping power, and the faithfulness of His Father. His confidence in the storm should be the envy of our hearts.
In our seasons of trial, we would do well to cry out not about our perishing, but for the place of rest where His perfect love promises to calm all of our fears.
It's time to pray.
