Walking on Water

Today, I was reading the story about Jesus walking on water and it really hit me that there are many times where I feel like Peter. I feel like I jumped out of the boat when He told me to, but there are times that I feel like this….

But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted.

It is so hard to not focus on all of the crap going on around me and wondering why I got out of the boat in the first place. The waves seem so big and that wind is blowing so hard. I sometimes just feel like giving up on the whole idea of getting back into ministry. But then as I read this….

Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”

It hit me really hard that I am a fool to doubt God. He called me, I know it and I will continue standing on that water with Him until it is time.

I am a follower of Jesus, a husband to Kim, father to Hannah & Caleb, and the connections pastor at The River Church. The thoughts expressed here are my own and not The River Church's.
