From a Creighton Student's Perspective

I see this passage as a call to cultivate a calm amidst the storm. With cell phones, television, email, facebook, traffic, and other distractions, it is easy to get swept away in the tempest of sensory information. It’s difficult enough to hear our own thoughts sometimes, much less discern the presence of God in our lives over this din. One of the things that helps me is taking a little time to myself (oftentimes no more than 10 minutes) during the day or at night before I go to sleep to walk through my day and try to recognize the times I felt most alive or the times I felt closest to God (spoiler alert: they are almost always the same things).
Although it is difficult to section off even this small part of my life, it helps me continue. I can, if even for a brief moment, quiet the bewildering storm around me and recognize Christ in my life. Usually, he’s right in front of me.
