An emotional entry. I haven’t sat down to journal in 3 weeks but today I knew it was time to pick it up again. There is something about journaling that unlocks my mind and allows me to freely express myself and record what God is doing in my personal life.
Will you join me for scripture this morning? Grab your bible and open to Matthew 14:22-31. Yes I want you to go and read it for yourself first. I’ll be right here when you’re done!
In recapping, Jesus walks on water toward the disciples as they are on a boat and caught in a storm. Peter, suddenly bold, decides to ask Jesus to tell him to step out on the water if it was really Him. And Jesus says, “come.” Peter did it. He walked on water toward Jesus. But the moment his eyes shifted from Jesus and his ears from His voice, and on to the sound of the wind and the sight of the waves, he began to sink.
Friends, how often do we step out in faith only to be redirected by fear? I don’t know why I’m so emotional reading this passage this morning but I KNOW Jesus is talking to me. In my business, my dreams, this new project we are working on, finances.... why is it so easy to get redirected ????
I firmly believe we have to be so intentional about where we fix our eyes and alert of when it shifts. Jesus DOES NOT MOVE. So this morning, it’s faith over fear. Can you relate to Peter this morning?
