“Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
Ever feel like Peter? I did. All last week. It’s funny how little distractions can really take your eyes off the One leading.
Little distractions, like:
Wedding problems, eating habits, job frustrations, believing lies… just to name a few.
I felt like Peter last week, sinking, as the waves of my life buffeted against me. (Ever feel that way?) I forgot to just keep my eyes focused, remembering that I’ve never been let down before.
Faith. That’s all it is. Believing that I won’t sink even though it feels that way–or even if I feel like I want to!
Jesus likes faith. It pleases Him.
