"At once..."

Recently, this verse jumped out at me, because of two little words, "at once."

We know the story, the disciples are in their boat during a storm and wondering where Jesus had disappeared to. They were rowing a long way in rough seas, probably thinking, come on Rabbi. Where are you?

Can you relate to the timing of Jesus' arrival? I can. They were going through a storm, and then, he was there. They were afraid, as we can be, so Jesus said, "It is I. Don't be afraid." Then the disciples were willing to take Him on board, and at once the boat was at the shore where they were heading.
