In Matthew 14:30, Peter sees the strong winds and the waves and begins to sink. "Save Me Lord," he shouted. Although we start out with good intentions, sometimes our faith falters.

The things surrounding you are real, and when you look at them you are may be immediately overwhelmed, and even unable to recognize Jesus. When you are apprehensive about the troubles around you and doubt Christ's presence or ability to help, remember that He is always with you and is the only one who can really help.

You will only recognize His voice more clearly through recklessness -- being willing to risk your all, in Him
