That day when evening came, he said to his disciples,
 “Let us go over to the other side.”

 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along,
 just as he was, in the boat.

  There were also other boats with him.

A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat,
 so that it was nearly swamped. 

Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion.

The disciples woke him and said to him,
“Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”

 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves,
“Quiet! Be still!”
Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid?
 Do you still have no faith?”
(Mark 4:35-41)

“ Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed,
you can say to this mountain,
‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move.
 Nothing will be impossible for you.”
(Matthew 17:20)

So the next time a storm is raging,
Lay down with your little faith
on the cushion beside Jesus
in the bottom of the boat
 calm your storm
and move your mountain.
