As I pray with today’s gospel, I am first confronted with my fear of drowning. It has always been such a strong fear, I cannot even imagine getting out of the boat as Peter did. However, I can recall the innumerable false starts in my relationship with Jesus. Like Peter, I want that relationship when life is rocking my boat perhaps here at work or with family or friends, or just with my own personal insecurities. I want to trust, but often I do not muster the faith to reach out to Jesus. Other times I can take that first step, but soon become faint-hearted and start floundering in my troubles. Jesus is always there to grab hold and carry me through despite my inability to trust or even acknowledge his love. It is totally amazing how much he gives to our relationship; his love is truly infinite.
