Imagine you are on a boat.  A strong wind is blowing, and the sea is no longer calm. You see the storm coming, and the sea is very rough. The waves are crashing into the boat, and water is entering the boat.

What are your thoughts? What are you worrying about or afraid of right now in your life?

  • Take a paper boat and write down your worries and fears.
  • Now put the paper boat in the water tub or container and think of how you can help yourself eliminate these fears.
  • Pray to God to remind you of His power and grace and to fill you with peace as you trust your worries in Him.
