Quick Thought Thursday: Where is Jesus Leading Us?

This is my “quick thought” from today’s reading in Mark 3-4.

“Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” ~Mark 4:35

Where is Jesus leading us?

Jesus must have known that they were headed straight into the storm. Still, Jesus leads them right where they’d never choose to be, in the middle of the chaos, and Jesus has the audacity to sleep while his disciples work with all their might to fight against the raging sea.

Can you imagine the frustration the disciples must have felt toward Jesus who led them straight into sure death, and now he’s sleeping!

Then, all at once Jesus speaks and creation obeys! Jesus silences the chaos and the disciples realize that being with Jesus in the storm is better than being without him in the calm.

Where is Jesus leading me? If I knew, would I still be willing to follow, or would I simply trust that life is always better wherever Jesus is?

This is what I heard in today’s reading, what did you hear?
