But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here!”
So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. – Matthew 14:27-29
You lured me out onto the water,
like a siren song Your perfect voice was impossible to ignore.
And now the fathoms below me loom dark and forbidding,
but I keep placing one waterlogged foot in front of the other.
How crazy is it that I’ve been walking on the water…
on the water…
while I’m asking where my Savior has gone?
My feet slap furiously against the deep
as I run full-out toward my King,
forgetting that liquid cannot bear my weight,
and is created to swallow me instead.
How have I completely dismissed every law of physics
at the same time that I am supernaturally supported,
while each step carries me soggily forward toward heaven?
The tide carries me closer
when it goes out
and nearer as it comes in.
Because even the sea
even the coldest ocean
even the tsunami wave of the briny fathoms
cannot separate me from the love of God
which is in Christ Jesus.
Lord, may the pain
never distract me so much
that I miss the miracle.
Father, grant me eyes that see
the wonder of my journey
across the dark deep.
Thank You for being there
should I ever start to sink.
I’m coming, Lord.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
