Walking On Water

Sometimes . . .

nothing seems to be working

and everything seems too hard.


I’ve learned time and time again,

God always has something more . . .


I’m willing to walk on water,

which means I must intentionally change the way I’m doing life.


I choose to get out of my “boat”

to risk faith


walk on water,

believing if, I start to sink,

God will lift me up.

And, yes,

there’s a key to walking on water:  focus on Jesus rather than on the circumstances.

And, yes,

there’s a warning:  going under is part of the learning process.

And, yes,

God always reaches out.

And, yes,

walking on water is worth learning.


Today–regardless of what comes my way–I’m choosing to focus on Jesus and walk on water.


It’s a walking-on-water kind of day.

Just like the time Peter stepped out of the boat in the storm:

Jesus:  Indeed, come.

Peter stepped out of the boat onto the water and began walking toward Jesus. But when he remembered how strong the wind was, his courage caught in his throat and he began to sink.

Peter: Master, save me!

Immediately Jesus reached for Peter and caught him.

Jesus: O you of little faith. Why did you doubt and dance back and forth between following Me and heeding fear?  (Matthew 14:29-31, Voice)
