Do You Have Jesus in Your Boat? Or have you ever felt alone like you were not going anywhere or your boat was sinking? That’s how it can be if Jesus is not there beside us in our boat.
You know when Jesus was crossing the sea of Galilee and fell asleep the disciples had to wake him up when a big storm came up, and Jesus calmed the storm. That’s what he does for us in our lives.
Have you ever felt like you couldn’t get through the tough time, or maybe with that one friends help you could get through it? Well Jesus is that one friend who is always there for us that wont let us down, who will gets us through it.
I know life can be tough at times, and I can remember situations where I am really glad the Jesus was on our side and in our boat. One of these situations was several summers ago and we were actually on a boating adventure, that we like to do when we can.
Well the day of boating was going just fine until our boat sucked up a ski line and we couldn’t free it. Then the second boat with us broke down too, we realized we were stuck out in the middle of nowhere on a large lake with no one to help us. Well Jesus was with us as my brother finally managed to find someone to tow us in but not after we all had the thought of this could turn out bad, I don’t think any of us will ever forget it.
Mark 4:39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.
You know at the time I didn’t realize, that one day I would write about something like this and how God protected our family that day, but as I reflect back I now know that he stepped in, and said I am calming this storm and will make everything better.
Isn’t that how it is sometimes when we go through life and just it’s so
assuring to know that we have the confidence to get through, and that God has our back and is protecting and loving us every single step of the way. That his LOVE is greater then any other and will always be there for us.
If we start to look at our lives from the perspective of who really is there for us and realize that Jesus is our one true friend, that one when you pick up the phone and say I need help, he will come through. Sometimes it may take a little while as he lines things up and rest assured he is working for you so know one can be against you.
Stay the course and if you don’t know Jesus ask him into you heart by saying this prayer. Jesus I know I have sinned, I ask you to come into my heart and cleanse me and wash away all that is old and flood in with your Love and forgive me of my past. If you said this prayer we believe you got born again. Find a good bible based church and have a great faith filled life.
Have a Blessed Day,
