Our relationship with Christ is one that is meant to be active. We don’t just surrender our burdens, we pursue Jesus in spite of our pain.
Mud washes away when we dive into the water, darkness flees in the glory of light, and our sin is released in the company of Christ. No other way will free us from the struggles of our own depravitity, no other soul can ignite ours like Christ; He must be followed, no matter the cost.
I hope to teach my children to never worry about circumstances, that if you have a broken down car; then you’ll be fine. That if you are lonely, you will be okay. That if your day is just not going as planned, then maybe God had different plans?
Circumstances will never end us; therefore I don’t want them to control us.
I pray that I can instill that into my future children.
I always wonder if we would be willing enough to jump out of the ship like Peter did, would we really walk on the rough seas toward Jesus? Would we really have the courage and devotion that Peter had? Yes he doubted, yes he started to fall but don’t we all? How many times have we stepped out expecting the seas to calm, when that’s not what was supposed to happen.
We are to walk in the midst of the storm, and when we fall, we must be like Peter, crying out for Christ; because He is faithful to hear and save you. Too many of us have drowned, and I know that breaks the heart of Christ.
He is always waiting for us, we just need to be willing to cry out to Him; for one day we will walk on waters and have faith that moves mountains, because we know that our God is faithful in coming to our aid.
