Matthew 14;26-33   “But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” and they cried out in fear.  But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.”  And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”  He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind,  he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.”  Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”  And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.  And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”

At one point, Peter looked to his Lord and stepped out in faith.  He walked on water!!!

I am at a point in my life where I am being asked to step out into an unknown and almost impossibly seeming journey.  I am being asked to step out in faith, trusting that my Lord will carry me and hold my head above water. The very thought of stepping out of my “boat” seems like I’d just drown.  Yet, I feel as if I am being called to walk down this very uncertain and scary path.

I hope that in some time in the near future, I can update this post and say that I obeyed and that the Lord was faithful and kept me afloat, though it seemed impossible to my doubting soul.
