To find a place of rest in turmoil is to understand Jesus asleep in the boat in the storm at sea. The only reason He needed to still the storm was to silence the fears of the disciples. The storm was not disturbing Him. I have a feeling He rather enjoyed it, for He recognized that it was from His Father’s hand. If we could know that, we would not fear winds nor wave. His was a greater peace, resting in the storm, than that which the disciples experienced following the “miracle”. (It wasn’t really more miraculous for God to stop the storm than to initiate it in the first place) We need so much to realize that whatever befalls us within divine providence really doesn’t need altering. It is we who need to be changed within – not so much the circumstances without.
