The meaning of this story is far greater than quieting a storm. The meaning of this story is that wherever Jesus is, the storms of life become calm. It means that in His presence there is peace. When the cold bleak wind of sorrow blows, there is calm and comfort in the presence of Jesus Christ. When the storms of doubt seek to uproot the very foundation of faith, there is a steady safety in the presence of Jesus Christ. In every storm that shakes the human heart there is peace with Jesus Christ.
