Wednesday after Epiphany

Matthew 6:19-20: Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not corrupt and thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, we pray that out of the riches of your grace, you may help us find my treasure in you and nothing else. Today, we want to offer you all that we are and have, so that our life will be lived for your glory. In the name of Infant Jesus, our example and treasure we pray. Amen.

Scripture: Mark 6:45-52
45Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, to Beth-sa'ida, while he dismissed the crowd. 46And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray. 47And when evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone on the land. 48And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. He meant to pass by them, 49but when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out; 50for they all saw him, and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said, "Take heart, it is I; have no fear." 51And he got into the boat with them and the wind ceased. And they were utterly astounded, 52for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
It was at Jesus' plan that the disciples set sail across the lake, only to find themselves in a life-threatening storm. Although they were skilled fishermen, they feared for their lives. The Lord never leaves us alone, but keeps continuous watch over us at all times, especially when we are tempted and experience weak or helpless. Do we look to the Lord to give you his strength and assistance when you are in need? Jesus assures us that we do not have to give into fear or discouragement if we put our faith in Him and remember his great love for us. He will see us through any assessment that comes our way. When calamities and trials pressure to overwhelm you, do we respond with faith and hope in God's loving care and company with you? Loving Infant Jesus, may we never doubt your saving help and your ever watchful presence, especially in times of hardship. Fortify our faith with courage and my hope with perseverance that we may never waver in our trust in you.
