  1. Stephanie,
    I love the pure faith and trust your daughter showed in believing that, she too, could walk on water. Oh to have the faith of a child! Lately, with the way our world has been going, I have been convicted that I need to be about my Father’s business should Jesus return. Luke 12 tells a story of the Master who goes away and leaves the manager in charge of His servants. The manager’s job is to give the servants their portion at the proper time. He’s been given His marching orders by the Master. Whether it’s following the Lord’s directions or pursuing participating in His miracles, now is not a time to be complacent. I’ve shared how God is convicting me during these times in this post: http://walkingwellwithgod.blogspot.com/2020/07/am-i-about-my-fathers-business.html Your post encourages me that I can, not only, be about His business, but I can be used to accomplish miracles. Good stuff!

  2. Wise words for today. Oh that we would have child like faith in every situation. My husband and I are currently needing a miracle regarding his aging parents and special needs adult sister. We know that God is much more aware of their needs than we are and we are trusting him to work out the tiniest details.
    Thank you for your encouraging words today.

  3. Praying for you Joan and your husband that God will provide everything you need down to the tiniest details according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

    Wonderful post Stephanie. Yes, to have the faith of a child again. Your post blessed my heart. Been battling breast cancer since November 2016. No chemo or radiation. Jesus only! Had mastectomy done September 2019. Surgeon took two biopsies on Wednesday, July 8th. I go
    back for results on biopsies and have stitches taken out July 14th. Would like prayer and also that I can be a witness to Christ’s saving power. Thank you!

  4. Excellent spoken Stephanie. I have to agree with you. So often when something go wrong in our lives. We panic we don’t go straight to Jesus in prayer. We expect our Husband if we have one. Our Mum if we have one or close friend to have the answer to make it better. We say sure they have the answer they know what to do. They don’t they worry just as much as us. Then we say why is this happening to me or if Married us. If it to do with an illness we right away expect if told from the Doctors why can’t you just give me if serious a few pills to make it go away. But they can’t. We then get into a panic no matter what it to do with. We just want it all to be better. We don’t think of Jesus at all. Probably Jesus never enters our heads at the time of the problem. We are in such a panic. What are saying to ourselves what are we going to do next. If we lost or jobs how are we going to pay the bills. If told we are very ill. Need treatment why me. Like Peter when he was walking on the water we have done the same we taken our eyes of Jesus the one who knows us and knows better than we know ourselves what we are going through that is Jesus. We being to sink. Because we can see no way out of this. Yes there is. We have to learn how to swim again. Not panic. No matter what the problem about. If we lost our jobs or a health reason. Or anything else. Jesus will take us through it. He take us by the hand. Like he did with Peter when he was walking on water and took his eyes of Jesus and began to drown. Jesus put out his hand to save him. Because he began to panic. When in first place we should have went to Jesus in prayer and he would have told us through his Holy Spirit what to do. Then we wouldn’t have felt as though we were drowning. We would have been still walking on the water and not have Panicked. It not easy. We are all human. I panic myself. When I should have first went to Jesus in prayer he would have told me what to do. I wouldn’t have felt I was drowning. I am so glad in the end I did listen to Jesus and held his hand and prayed to him he help me. No better help did I get. Love today’s reading xxx

  5. This reminded me of Walking on Water by Madeleine L’Engle! That is a great question and you’ve got me thinking: where do I see God doing a miracle and how can I join Him?

  6. What a marvelous story to wake up to yes I too want to. walk on water and in my heart I can because Jesus lives there.

  7. Stephanie,

    A few years ago my aging dad was put in geriatric psych hospital. It was scary for me. I kept crying out to God to just take him, please don’t let this be the way he lives out his life. Also asked God what is it I am to learn from this trial? Turns out my faith & trust muscles were grown immensely. As a result of having my dad healed completely I was ready to surrender my all for Him. I volunteer with Relay for Life (Cancer), helped another church feed Recovering Soldiers twice. I sense a calling to do all the good I can, by all the means I can, in all the ways I can, in all the places I can, at all the times I can, to all the people I can, as long as ever I can-quote by John Wesley. We’ve been given our mandate in Matthew 28:19-20 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Especially now in these trying times we need to show this world God’s light & love.

    Blessings 🙂

  8. Oh yes–to join Jesus in the miracles He’s doing! What could be more exciting and meaningful? I pray my heart may be in tune with His and my attention focused on those around me (or these days on Facebook, in the blogosphere, etc., since face-to-face encounters are rare) so at Jesus’ prompting I can get out of the boat and minister His Word in His name. Thank you, Stephanie, for the reminder of that strong image, Peter walking on the water, reminding us we too can walk into the unknown.
