Bible Reflection 7 (Matthew 14:28-30)

But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink cried out, β€œLord, save me!” Matthew 14:28-30

Everyone has had times where they feel like they are drowning. They are overwhelmed by too many problems or too many projects in their life. Too many people expect too much from them. When this happens, many people turn to unhealthy mechanisms for dealing with stress.

Christians, however, would do well to turn to God. When you are feeling hopeless or overwhelmed, cry out to Him before you drown, and He will save you. He is always there for you, and He will guide you to safety if you are willing to listen to Him.
