Oh my goodness … I am totally having a light bulb moment!! I was baking this morning (yes baking!! That was after making two loaves of bread … yer baby!!) and heard our 10yr old reading the bible to the other three.
She was reading Matt, specifically Matt 14: 22-33 …
Jesus Walks on the Water
Immediately He made the disciples get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side, while He sent the crowds away. After He had sent the crowds away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone. But the boat was already a long distance from the land, battered by the waves; for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. 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 courage, it is I; do not be afraid.”
Peter said to Him, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” And He said, “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” When they got into the boat, the wind stopped. And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “You are certainly God’s Son!”
Yes I am still alive!! And yes God and I are still very much on a journey together.
It’s touching that people noticed I was ‘quiet’ – possibly because me being quiet is very out of character lol!!
To say that life has been crazy busy is an understatement. Good busy, but crazy non the less!! Far to crazy to catch a moment to write.
Don’t get me wrong though … It has been an incredible few weeks of prayer, fellowship, exercise, discipleship, weddings, an overseas event, homeschooling, foster children, family, birthdays, life. Continue reading →
Fundamentally, I know and believe that God can calm any storm, heal any disease, raise the dead to life, give sight to the blind, let the lame walk ……. The part He is teaching me is that, sometimes He doesn’t.
My question has been; “why doesn’t He?”
I know the standard answer is “we live in a fallen world.” But when you are the one in the storm, that answer brings very little comfort! Continue reading →
