After reading, If You Want to Walk on Water, You Have to Get Out of the Boat, (Jon Ortberg), I decided that getting out of the boat was the easy part. "Wow, Jesus, I want to do that too!"
Staying focused on Jesus rather than the wind and the waves is the hard part. I suppose even in the doldrums that is also true.
So my prayer and meditation in whatever journey I undertake is to
keep my eyes fixed on the One who will walk with me and keep me above water.
Matthew 14: 25-33
