Little Faith

During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. 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!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “you of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:22-33 NIV

So that I don’t forget, I noted these verses. I was on my way to meet with the Gideons, driving, feeling the demons piling on my back. So, I prayed for God to ease my soul. Just minutes later I was reading scripture with the other men and these verses penetrated my being as if God was making the connection for me. At a dark time Jesus came to me. I wasn’t sure if it was him, but, stepped out toward him, only to remain haunted. In my lack of faith in his grace, I bagan to sink. I called on him to save me and he did. Blessed morning. Blessed day. Blessed life from a gracious, loving God.
