Lent Day 11: Out of Breath

The wind ran out of breath; the sea turned to glass. Mark 4:39(b)

I was reading this day out of The Message, and although this translation is only 'thought-for-thought', there was something poetically enticing about wording this well-known passage like this ... "the wind ran out of breath".

Jesus calming the storm is such a familiar story that I think (tongue in cheek) even Holy Spirit would have a hard time making it new and fresh. But alas, I am once again proven why he's Holy Spirit and I'm ... me.

"The wind ran out of breath; the sea turned to glass."

Two forces of nature brought under immediate control at the utterance of its Master and Creator. Oh, that my heart and soul would one day be so submissive. That is my desire and prayer.
