Destiny Church Family, 

Pastor Chris brought an incredible word on Sunday about how to respond to pressure. We looked at the qualities revealed through Daniel’s life and what to do when we make an appeal. Remember, what has been tested can be trusted and attitude determines acceptance. Don’t miss part three of this exciting and very timely series! 

Thought for the week… 

Jesus and His disciples were crossing the Sea of Galilee. Jesus was napping in the back of the boat. Then a storm began. But this was not your average storm. It must have been serious because these experienced fishermen started freaking out. We find the story in Mark 4. 

The disciples woke Jesus up and said, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?” You can hear the fear and frustration in the question. It’s almost more like a statement. They were about to die and Jesus was napping. They concluded that He must not care. 

Jesus woke up, probably stretched and yawned, and said, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped and there was a great calm. Then Jesus asked the disciples, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” Then He may have gone back to sleep. 

Jesus doesn’t want us to live a lifestyle of panic. Of being awed by storms, or struggling to survive. He wants us to learn to rest in Him and even rest like Him. To laugh off the storms, knowing that even though the storm is bigger than us, it is not bigger than Jesus. Storms come and go, but Jesus is always with us. 

We encourage you to continue worshipping with us online if you are at high risk, have recently been sick, or are showing possible symptoms of COVID-19. For those unable, or not yet ready to return in person, live online worship gatherings will continue at https://destinychurchjacksonville.com and https://www.facebook.com/destinychurchjax/ 

“A wise, mature person is known for his understanding. The more pleasant his words, the more persuasive he is” (Proverbs 16:21).
