Day 14: Un Unworthy


You know you need to do it. You know you want to do it.

Yet FEAR fills you being,

because getting out of the boat

and walking on water

is an impossibility for you.

Why even try

as you would rather just sit in the rocking boat

watching others walking on water

because you don't DESERVE to have the same

JOY & PEACE & HOPE

that the water walkers have

because the

ARROW of UNWORTHY

is stuck in your heart

and

you don't know how to live without it.

But then you hear the words,

“Take courage, it is I! Do not be afraid!” (Matthew 14:27)

How can you be COURAGEOUS to take that step

when you don't BELIEVE that the water would hold you.

But oh you are craving it as you are so tired of being left in the boat..

But then you hear the words again,

“Daughter, take courage; your faith has made you well" (Matthew 9:22)

And you start to squirm because you keep hearing the same message~

“Take courage, son; your sins are forgiven” (Matthew 9:2)

And now you really start to squirm

because you realize that the words are not just coming from your head

as they are being drawn from your wounded heart~

coming from the ONE who is WALKING ON WATER

and is speaking right to you~.

UNWORTHY you.

But if HE really knew you

like you know yourself

and like everyone else knows you

HE wouldn't be asking you to

take that step

because you just have too many

ARROWS

that keep reminding you that you are

UNWORTHY

to even put your toe in the water.

But then you see HIS HAND reaching out to you.

Tears fill your eyes

as you realize that HE is really asking you to

TAKE COURAGE~

the confident assurance that HE will bring you to spaces & places where you never

BELIEVED you could go,

but it is YOU who was keeping yourself in the boat.

And then you do it.

You stand up,

laying FEAR aside for a brief moment

as

a wee bit of TRUST starts to remove

UNWORTHINESS

from your heart.

You are overwhelmed

that the hardest step

becomes the easiest step

as you RECEIVE HIS INVITATION.

And then everything changes in an instant

as HOPE starts to flood your soul

because

living as UNWORTHY

doesn't have to be AN OPTION any longer.

Oh that step of FAITH will cost you~

everything that you have that has kept you stuck in the boat.

And now

UNWORTHY

is NO LONGER AN OPTION

because

you

"PUT YOUR HAND IN THE HAND" (listen below)

of JESUS!
