work to do

Yes, I have work to do here
I wake early, refusing sleep until late
still, away from what is normal
I have found my return
to communion with my Lord
His words this morning:

we are not finished
the plans I have 
stretch farther than you can see
on a road only made smooth
by faith
and trust in Me

its when you let go of My hand
and when you look around
that fear falls
like Peter on the water

he did the impossible
when his eyes
focused on Me

you, little one
can do likewise

Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.”
“Yes, come,” Jesus said. 
So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink.
 “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. 
“You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?”
Matthew 14:28-31 RSV
