[Jesus] got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. - Mark 4:39 (NIV)
I recently watched my little boy as he tried unsuccessfully to get the wheel of his homemade toy to work. He got so frustrated that he gave up, tossed it aside, and burst into tears.
His outburst reminded me of my own frustrating battles. Things didn’t seem to be working...
Even when storms rage, I will cast my cares on Christ and relax.

The RESILIENCE conference in 2021 was so uplifting and nourishing. It was wonderful to be with other Christians around the world at this retreat, who truly care about responding to trauma in a compassionate way by teaching spiritual practices to help with grounding and healing.”
Join us for the next RESILIENCE conference on September 29-30, 2023. Learn more at UpperRoom.org/resilience.
