I'm drowning (and other fears God can handle)

 



Lord, save me--

I'm drowning.

Lord, show me--

I'm doubting.

Lord, catch me--

I'm afraid.

You are God. 

Your ways are unknowable,

but they are always good.

Lord, I believe.

Help my unbelief.

In Jesus' name,

Amen.


"Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. 'It’s a ghost,' they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: 'Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.' '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! 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.'” (Matthew 1:25-33)
