So stressed...

15:48:00 Karen Li 0 Comments

I've had a couple of really good weeks. Weeks where I have felt so passionately close to God. Even though I have been busy with work and worship, I have not felt tired.

There are some days when I just want to hide in a dark corner and cry my eyes out. I want to throw in the towel. And then just live freely, without considering the consequences of tomorrow. Today is one of those days. If I had time to cry, I would.

What I can see in front of me is a mountain load of tasks, some of them expected, others unexpected. Many of them have to be completed within the next few days, most of them have to be completed by tomorrow. Stressed to the max. I can't see a way out. I can't see how it's possible.

I've been a little like Peter. While I kept my eyes on the Lord, I was able to walk on water. Now, as soon as I took my eyes off Jesus, I found that I'm suddenly drowning. Oh, Karen, you have little faith, why do you doubt!

Matthew 14:22-33

English Standard Version (ESV)

Jesus Walks on the Water

22  Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. 23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, 24 but the boat by this time was a long way[a] from the land,[b]beaten by the waves, for the wind was against them. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. 26 But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” and they cried out in fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.”
28 And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” 29 He said, “Come.”So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind,[c] he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” 31 Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” 32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. 33 And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
