Read Mark 4:35-41. Leaders face storms. Turning to God during these times provides perspective and strength.
It helps us keep our priorities straight. It gives hope where we see none and calms us so we can demonstrate emotional control to those under our care. The more believers understand that God is in control, the more they find peace in difficult situations. This peace that passes understanding is a powerful example to influence those around us (Php 4:7 and John 16:33).
