Do You Have Jesus in Your Boat?

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,

When our cruise control for God won’t set

When our cruise control for God won’t set.

Have you ever had a cruise control that was broken or wont set if your going to slow in your car? I was driving the other day and thought wow is that what happens when we follow God?

If we cant get our cruise control set for God it feels out of sort. When we

learn to set our cruise control for God its exciting to see where he’s going to take us. Some times as we go through life it gets difficult to stay focused in what God has for us in life and if remember like it says in Hebrews 12:2

Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

It helps us to stay focused on him and allows us to start living at a higher level for him.

Sometimes when we feel like we can set the cruise for that day for God try and jump start your day with maybe a bible study or sending a friend a scripture. This can go along ways in letting you see Gods word and take action upon what he has for you in his heart.

I know recently a friend of mine was try to help someone by ministering to them and he had a major break through with them that he shared with me. When he set Gods cruise control and he let the Lord set the controls God stepped in and allowed him to make a huge difference in this persons life and it was amazing to see. Moral of that story is to stay the course and watch the Good Lord show up!

If you look at so many people that are truly in need of Gods word and the many opportunities we truly have in our lives to reach out and help others and spread the word and Love of the Almighty we start to look at our lives in a whole new light as each day becomes very exciting with the possibilities the God is opening up for us and through us.

Stay the course and start the conversation with God and he will guide you to a whole new direction in Life, one of Awesome Possibilities!

At times I have grown frustrated as we waited for God to show up in situations and realized when God has the wheel he maybe taking a different route then what we are use to and its at his speed as he is setting the controls in your life Just SO! When we realize this our mind is freeed and is open to all possibilities the God is giving us through him.

Stay the course set your cruise control for God and don’t give up and you will live a great and awesome life in him.

Have a Blessed Day,

Bradley Paul
