Direct your life
We must gain control over our “Will” and then turn it over to God for direction. When a child in a earthly family trusts his parents to provide for him, he finds that he can enjoy life. If he has worries over whether he is going to have enough to eat or where he is going to live, He cannot enjoy life and have a good family relationship. To maintain your faith when situations are difficult, keep your eyes on Jesus’ power rather than on your inadequacies.
(Matthew 14: 28-31)Then Peter spoke up. “Lord, if it is really you, order me to come out on the water to you.”
“Come!” answered Jesus, So Peter got out of the boat and started walking on the water to Jesus. But when he notices the strong wind, he was afraid and started to sink down in the water. “Save me, Lord!” he cried.
At once Jesus reached out and grabbed hold of him and said, “What little faith you have! Why did you doubt?”
What do you see in your own life that is similar to this?
Even St. Peter had trouble with trust. If a child trusts his father; that he will only allow him in situations that he can handle, and that he will have the capability to deal with the situation; he then can act effectively.
(Wisdom 1:2)”Those who do not try to test him will find him, He will show himself to those who trust him.”
What changes in my actions do I need to make?
