The walk of faith
Why not hear it straight from the bible ;)
22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, 24 and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.
27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
29 “Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
Matthew 14:22-33New International Version (NIV)
We are all peter
Just like Peter we all lose sight of God. It can be just as easy for us as it was for Peter. Jesus called to him and he trusted and had faith that when Jesus told him that if he has faith he can walk on water to him and not sink. Now Peter was doing great just like we do in life for a short while and while we are doing great we start to think that we are fine on our own. Yet that's when we lose sight of Jesus just like Peter did and we start to drown. But wait Jesus grabs us and never really lets us sink EVER even if we feel like we are He is always right there. As long as we have faith and keep our eyes fixed up one the Lord He is with us and we can do ANYTHING WITH JESUS!
