You're Invited...

Matt 14:28-30 "Lord, if it's you," Peter replied, "tell me to come to you on the water." "Come," he said.  Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, "Lord, save me!"

This journey we call life is all about change going on all around us but the most important change is what is going on inside! Our character—who we really are, what lies within us—comes out in crisis, emerging from the classroom of life, standing out for everyone to see. Character is developed, it just does not happen. We will face ups and downs but knowing He is working in us maturing us thru those tough times (Ephesians 3:10). This is a place that is uncomfortable and the crazy part is that we forget our God is more than capable of directing our steps and guiding me! Powerful place to be because we have chosen to leave what is safe to us and trust Him and allow Him to work in us. Not living in fear and constantly reacting and being disappointed with what we do and say but choosing to make changes from the inside out and let character have its way. Then let us take the step out of the boat we think of and established as our security and walk to Him and He will transform us!

Matthew 14:31-33 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. "You of little faith," he said, "why did you doubt?" And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God."
