A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough. When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were frightened. But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.” Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading. – John 6:18-21 (NIV)
We live in a turbulent world – natural, man-made or self-made. Some times, it seems like we’re paddling up stream. When we row alone, rough waters toss our boat around and we cling, shaking, to the sides – being lost at sea, sinking, drowning – our deepest fears. All we have to do is let Jesus in our boat. Not only does He calm the storm, He moves the ship to dry dock, safe and sound. He’ll walk out to meet you – let Him in!
