FOOTPRINTS ON THE SEA
(Mt 14:22-33 )
Walking on the sea
Jesus questioned Peter’s doubts,
and terrified friends.

We doubt, like Peter,
and our willingness falters,
yet Jesus buoys us.

Do not be afraid:
strong encouragement to take
faint but eager steps.

That may be enough
in our following Jesus
day by day by day.
