Peace, Be Still

Early this morning, about 3:30 AM, I was in a hotel room with one of my boys in Rochester, MN waiting for an 8:00 AM consult with his doctor at Mayo Clinic to hear the results of the previous day’s test. The words of this Gaither song (“Peace, Be Still”) came in the night: “He says, ‘Peace! peace be still!’ Lifts His hands, ‘Peace!, be still!’ Like a child, my heart obeys Him; when He says, ‘Peace!, be still!'”

My thoughts went to Mark 4:35-39 when Jesus was with His disciples in the storm. His disciples yelled out to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” (Mark 4:38, ESV). Mark 4:39 says, “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” (ESV). The results were not those for which we had hoped. But today I am saying to myself, “Peace! peace be still!”
