Surf’s up

But when he saw the strong  wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?” Matt. 14:30-31

Like the rest of us, Peter’s life was a series of failures and rescues punctuated by moments of faith. Fortunately, Jesus rescues us when we’re sinking and encourages us to ride the next wave standing up. Peter never found out what would have happened that time had he not sunk into his fears but those times he stood faithful had amazing results.

Lord, help me have faith when the waves get high.
