2020 feels like a raging storm, while we sit huddled in a boat, worried we might sink.
Waves hit the sides of the boat: financial fears, worry about illness, closed borders and visas. Political unrest. Homesickness.
In Matthew 14, Jesus walked through the storm, out on the water toward the disciples. We know the story, right? In the midst of the fear, Peter steps over the side of the boat to meet Jesus. But then for a moment he turned his eyes away, back to the storm and the waves, and he started to sink.
Jesus immediately reached out to him. And he reaches out to us.
