WAVES OF LIFE ~
Matthew 14:22-33 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Walks on the Water
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.”

It is clear that Peter trusted Jesus and then became afraid
Have you ever trusted Jesus and suddenly became afraid? I can tell you through the process of the heart attack, I know that I trusted God. I felt peace, but I felt scared when I had to enter the actual room of my heart stent. I called my courage up and ask God for peace through this. I knew that my family was praying and friends. Yet, I found myself so human that I could relate to Peter. Easy when you keep you eyes on Jesus, and a little harder when you see the winds of life around you. We must remember we are human and give yourself a break of fear. The devil tries to trap our minds in wrong thinking and scared. God will give true peace through it all and send others to help encourage us too. Be encouraged today in whatever you face. You are not alone and the God of peace is right here.

They change us and we can grow from them. Our learning experiences can help someone else. I know this experience of my life has already helped several people. People are getting check ups and taking health more serious. Also know this, calling on God and knowing he is able, gives peace of mind.
Purpose this a good day and live in peace of mind. God has your day already in motion and destiny is ahead. There is nothing to be afraid of in life and keeping your mind in peace. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Thank you for taking time to read blog and share it.
