Calm and Stars is a painting created by Yongsung Kim a world renowned christian artist. This painting depicts Jesus Christ calming the seas in a boat with one of His disciples, so that the stars can guide them home.
Jesus Christ calming a storm on the open seas should be comforting to us all. Yongsung Kim hopes that his painting Calm and Stars can create calm in each of us and help us remember the power of Christ. Because if Christ can calm physical storms, He surely can calm the spiritual and emotional storms we each face in mortality. Christ is also our light in the darkness, just as the stars in heaven.
Here are the verses in Mark 4:37-41 that tell the story of the Calm & Stars painting by Yongsung Kim.
37And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
38And 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?
39And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
41And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
