Today's reading comes from the Gospel of Matthew 14:22-36 and in it is one of my favorite parts about Peter telling Jesus to command him to walk on water if it really is Jesus he sees walking on the water. Once he started, he realized the wind is strong and the waves are high and becomes frightened at once so he starts to sink-at this, he cries to Jesus (oh, now he knows it is Him), and of course, Jesus reaches out to him and says , "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
It is really interesting the way I always say that the Spirit is always in fact moving in our lives at the right time and reason. Just earlier I was literally speaking with someone about this exact verse from scripture because I had a dream a while back when my father was in the midst of dying where I too was on a boat in a stormy sea and almost fell off the boat when a hand grabbed my wrist (I really felt it) and pulled me up, and all I remember seeing was the calm face of Christ looking at me as if to say, did you really think I would let you fall? When I saw today's reading, I just had to blog about it because it was so powerful for me; I hope His peace, joy, and love is powerful for you in times of doubt, despair, and stormy seas!!
