Leaving the crowd, they took Him along with them in the boat and other boats were with Him. Mark 4:36 Panic overwhelms during the storms of life when peril convinces that we are the only ones in need of salvation. “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” We, like the disciples, forget this journey is not just about us. Jesus in compassion knows those traveling alongside, those struggling and fighting for faith in the midst of the same storm. Later, the disciples remembered the other boats those Jesus delivered when He calmed the storm. May we be ever mindful that we are on this journey together. Our rescue can bring the deliverance of many others.
