Do you remember the story of Peter walking on water?

It is written out at the bottom of the page.

~

Peter stepped out of the boat

and

started walking on water.


When Peter looked at the waves,

he panicked.

When we look at problems

that seem

overwhelming,

we often panic.

That is the time to focus on the one

who has the power to do miracles.

As we focus on who Jesus is

and

how much he loves us,

we feel calmer.

Christians are not always

happy and peaceful.

~ ~

If Christians want to be happy and peaceful,

they must

trust and obey.

explains:


Trust and Obey

To be happy in Jesus,

But to

Peter walked on Water


Here is the story of Peter walking on water.

Matthew 14:22-33


22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.

23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.

25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.

27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
