Matthew 14:31
And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, 'O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?'

Peter asked the Lord to allow him to walk on the water. Seeing his Master walking on the waves caused Peter to wish to do likewise. However, once he began his walk, he found himself sinking and afraid. What did the Lord do at this sign of unbelief? Did He allow Peter to sink? Of course not! So long as Jesus is nearby, we need never fear for our lives. Jesus Christ reaches out His hand to us when we get in over our heads. Though He wants us to develop unshakable faith, He is forgiving and loving, and He lifts us up when we are too weak to stand up on our own.

Today's thought: Thank the Lord that Christ holds me up when I'm most down!

    Like Peter, we all take our eyes off our Lord and look at circumstances. He is here, with us.

    Thanks for sharing

    Love the thought of the day. He said He would carry me when I could no longer walk. His foot prints are in the sand. Precious Lord I need you now for I am struggling with food, exercise and pain. I know you will give me the strength to carry on. I know you will walk with me as I take this journey. I know you are always listening to my every cry and to my every thought ready to help me when I am in need. Thank you precious Lord. Amen
