DAY 19: Jesus Calmed the Storm # LIGHTtheWORLD
Song: Savior of the World
Scripture: Mark 4:37-40
And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

Activity: Give your family or loved ones the gift of a 72-hour kit for emergencies. We put together a 72-hour kit for the whole family with free child identification cards that you can attach to your 72-hour back packs.
Advent Gift Idea: Put some stencils into a bag. Have the children color, write or draw themselves a picture or letter. Have them put it into their 72 hour kit backpack to give them comfort and a smile if their ever comes a time when they will need help “calming the storms” of their own life. For ideas on 72 hour kits, visit our past blog series about putting them together.
