Always Faithful – Semper Fidelis
So often what happens in life, or what does not happen, depends on making the right connections. As the old saying goes: “It is not what you know but who you know that makes all the difference.”
The Apostles during the storm failed to connect to Our Lord. He was with them, in their very midst, yet they complained instead of praying. Once He finally resolved the issue and calmed their fears then they were filled with awe. At this stage of their formation they still had not connected to the fact that Christ is God and there are no limits to His divine power – but we limit Him by not making the right connections by resisting His grace and not moving out of our comfort zone.
In the first reading we are reminded of how Job was tested beyond the limits of most but never lost sight of the big picture and God’s presence.
