The readings for the Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time for Year B (see below) demonstrate that we must turn to God during the storms in our lives. In the first reading God tells Job that he is more powerful than natural events. In the gospel the apostles wake Jesus up during a violent storm and calms it for them.
Discussion of these readings would almost certainly include talk of what troubles us and how we can trust in Jesus when life seems overwhelming.
