I’ve been thinking a lot about Peter.
He climbed out of the boat,
He stepped out on the waves and followed.
But he saw the wind,
He was afraid. He started sinking.
Jesus reached out his hand.
Took hold of him,
“O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
I read that story and know
That I’m a lot like Peter
Two steps on the waves and I’m sinking.
And Jesus is the same.
Reaching out his hand to pull me up.
To calm the waves.
To hang the stars.
To hold the whole world.
”Why do you doubt?”
