He’s In Our Boat

There are so many different types of boats. Fishing boats, speed boats, canoes, cruise liners, the list goes on.

Boats are centuries old and has been a mode of transportation since the days of Jesus. He used a boat to get to different locations. We use them today for travel, sport and leisure.

Aren’t we all in the same boat these days? The virus that swept the world still lingers. This is one boat that I’m ready to depart.

Life can change in a moment. Just a year ago, I was making plans to go on another mission trip, and then those plans were put on hold.

Most of us had a similar outlook with a different future in mind. I’ll admit that I tried to get out of the boat and swim ahead with my own plans.

But knowing that Jesus is in the boat with me and has brought me through some tumultuous waters before, I stayed in the boat and He’s brought me to the other side. Hurt but not beaten, changed but not lost.

Stop trying to swim against the currents of life and take hold of Jesus, who has walked on water and who has promised a future where there will be no more plagues, pain or heartache.

He’s in the boat. Are you ready to get in?

Mark 4:40-41 – “He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
