Focus...Matthew 14:22-36

The rain fall was heavy...

The boat rocks back and forth...

The wind blows, and the waves crash..

In the distance they see something walking on the water, and they were afraid and they cry out in fear...

Sound familiar?

Matthew 14:29--30
Jesus said "Come!"
And Peter left the boat and walked on the water to Jesus. But when Peter saw the wind and the waves, he became afraid and began to sink. He shouted "Lord, save me!"

I think we all have been Peter...

We step out of the boat in faith focusing on Jesus, but the harder the wind blows the more the waves crash, the louder the kids scream, the longer the lonely nights get, the more we worry, the more the mountain of bills grow......

We loose focus... and begin to sink.

We sink in thoughts of:

What if?

Why now?

Faith and Focus..

It moves us from the boat to the water faith picks our feet up to take the step towards the one who will reach out his hand and catch us when we begin to look at the waves that crash from every side...the rain may blur our vision, the wind may take our breath...

But Faith and Focus will keep us afloat.

Never loose focus of the one who will carry you through your storm.

He will guide you, protect you, fill you when you are empty, comfort you when you are hurt...and most importantly...

He will save you when you are sinking...Just focus on him.
