Today's reading: John 6:16-21
Sometimes hard times will come upon us by no fault of our own. But regardless of how the difficulty develops and comes, God is not unaware, and is in fact right there with us, eager to walk alongside and ultimately bring us through our situation.
That's precisely the scenario in this account with the disciples crossing the sea to Capernaum. The disciples are simply traveling to where they knew Jesus wanted them to go when they encounter stormy weather. Part way through the journey they see Jesus walking on the water. He tells them not to fear and then travels with them in the boat to the other side of the sea.
How have you experienced God walking alongside and bringing you through a difficult situation? What comfort do you draw from knowing that, no matter the situation, God is always with you? What situation or circumstance is God walking through with you right now? Tami
