Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.
There are some challenges in our life right now. We've been in the middle of a storm now for a very long time, like the disciples were when they crossed the lake. We've been riding the waves, up and down. But, lately, it feels more like the waves are overtaking us. This last Sunday in church the sermon was about the waves overtaking us, and one of the points he made was that Jesus told his disciples to get in the boat and go to the other side! Just go to the other side! There will be storms in between, but Jesus comes and calms them down. We don't even know how long it's going to take to get to the other side, we just know that Jesus said to go to the other side.
For me, there are many things that Jesus has said to me that does not coincide with what is happening now, but I have to keep my focus on what he said. It's challenging. Life circumstances do not look good, the waves bring moments of doubt and questions, but I'm not at the other side yet.
I'm in the middle of the lake!
My husband, children, and I are not going to drown because Jesus put us in the boat and told us to go to the other side.
When fear creeps in, and it does, I have to run back to my source and he reminds me that we will not be forgotten.
Jesus, Say That Again!
