Reflection of the Week - 31 July 2019

Posted in Faith

Peter answered him, 'Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.' (Matt 14: 28)

I may never be asked to walk on water, but I am asked to keep my eyes on the one the One who did, and to trust only in Him.

Like Peter of old, my natural response to trouble or danger is to fear.

I take my eyes off Jesus , and begin to sink until I hear the words to his disciples;

'Take heart; it is I, do not be afraid.' (Mathew 14:27)


When I am busy today, and I forget you Lord, do not forget me. Amen.

I will not let fear turn me aside from Jesus Christ, who stilled the waves.
