Why do I expend so much effort trying to avoid trials rather than seeing You and Your Purpose in that moment? You did not promise us heaven now but taught us to pray, “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”! Is my focus on avoiding problems not double-minded faithlessness?
When I keep my eyes on You, Lord, while the waves rage around me, I can count it all joy knowing You are developing endurance, steadfastness and patience in me and magnifying Your Glory through me.
Ja 1:2-3AMP; Ps 63:7-8; Mt 6:10; Mt 14:28-31
When you love you walk on the water
Just don’t stumble on the waves
We all want to go there somethin’ awful
But to stand there it takes some grace.
We are not as strong as we think we are.
