Jesus’s sleep [on the boat in the storm] is like the sleep of the sower (Mk.4:27). He has done the work that is expected of him. The rest is left in God’s hands. The attitude of peaceful trust is the result of an unambiguous commitment to the Father’s will. On the one hand, there is a fervent and proactive sense of mission, to complete the work given me to do. This is complemented, on the other hand, by a placid expectation that the rest of the pieces will fit in place without my being unduly concerned about them.
