Matthew 14:30
But seeing the wind and the waves, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!”

After Thought

Peter had been miraculously walking to Jesus on the water. Then, as he took his eyes off of the Lord and focused on the wind and waves he began to sink. How easy it is to slip from a faith focus back into a fear focus.

Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom

Have a Little Faith: A True Story by Mitch Albom

“Clear some space on your bookshelf for Mitch Albom’s, Have a Little Faith, the story of a faith journey that could become a classic. Those who were born into faith, have lost faith, or are still searching will all be engaged and challenged by this powerful story of “finding faith” in relationships with others and with something greater than ourselves. Never satisfied with easy answers or soft platitudes, Mitch explores some of life’s greatest mysteries and unanswered questions with great honesty, depth and self reflection.” (Jim Wallis, CEO and Founder of Sojourners and author of The Great Awakening)

Fear

Fearless by Max Lucado

Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear by Max Lucado

Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.

They’re talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison of unlocked doors. Wouldn’t it be great to walk out?

You'll Get Through This by Max Lucado

You’ll Get Through This by Max Lucado

In You’ll Get Through This, pastor and New York Times best-selling author, Max Lucado offers sweet assurance. “Deliverance is to the Bible what jazz music is to Mardi Gras: bold, brassy, and everywhere.” Max reminds readers God doesn’t promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. It wasn’t for Joseph–tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed–but his Old Testament story is in the Bible for this reason: to teach us to trust God to trump evil. With the compassion of a pastor, the heart of a storyteller, and the joy of one who has seen what God can do, Max explores the story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good.
