(Inspired by Matthew 14:22-33)
I can hear Jesus calling me,
challenging me, encouraging me,
"Step over the rising waters,
take my hand, and dare to be free.
Dare to give me your trust
when you fall face first in the dust.
Dare to love and serve
when you've worn out every nerve.
Dare to see blessings
when it seems you have nothing.
Dare to hold tight to my side
when life is a roller-coaster ride.
Dare to reach for your dreams
no matter how far they seem.
Dare to believe my promises are true
and that I have a never-ending love for you
Dare to find your peace,
your strength, your joy,
your hope, your every need
And as you do this,
you are daring to be set free.
For when you dare to step out
over crashing waves to grasp my hand,
chains of fear, insecurity and doubt
will break open as I lead you to land.
Dare to come to me,
for I have the keys you need.
Dare to rest in my love,
O my beloved one.
Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, but the boat by this time was a long way from the land, beaten by the waves, for the wind was against them. And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” and they cried out in fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.”
And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
