Don't Squint!

Once, while filming, I tried to look at the camera and the cue card at the same time. “Don’t squint!” I was told. It’s obvious that when I tried to look in two directions I lost my focus.

The Gospel of Matthew tells the story of Peter walking to meet Jesus. Things were going well. He started strong. He defied the laws of man and nature. It was as though he was walking on a paved highway. But suddenly he began to sink. He took his eyes off of Jesus and became concerned about the high winds and angry waves. When we take our eyes off Christ, we stop trusting in Him and His ability to care for our every need. It is then that we begin to sink as well. We fall into our own miry pits and unless we reach for God, we will drown. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus and walk towards Him in the midst of our storms.

Prayer: Lord, I pray that I will always keep focused on You and Your grace. Help me not to be distracted by things around me, but be able to boldly grow in my faith. In Your Name, Amen.

Scripture for Today: Matthew 14:23-36
