The Forward Day by Day Meditation

Today's Meditation


Mark 6:51 They were utterly astounded.

I can imagine one of my students telling me this story, all breathless and slightly sweaty, with a tiny bit of lunch left in the brackets of their braces. It would go something like this:

In less than 24 hours, Jesus has cancelled our vacation, fed five thousand men and who knows how many women and children, and then put us all on a boat, only to wave at us from the shore as he starts walking up the hill. And now, he’s walking on water in the middle of a crazy storm, commanding the wind and the waves, and telling us not to be afraid. It’s been a crazy day. I can’t remember what time we had lunch, or if we ate dinner. I’m super tired, and I just wish I was wearing dry underpants.
