Weekly Update - 3/20

Thank you Patrick for the lesson this morning, with the text coming from Matthew 14:22-36.  He asked if we could even imagine seeing someone walking on the water?
We would probably be as terrified as the disciples were!
*Storms reveal how strong we are!
*There are 366 times in the Bible where we are told "DO NOT FEAR".
*When we are in the storm, Jesus prays for us!
*Jesus comes to us, just like he did for the disciples... In the middle of the lake!  And He does this, because He loves us and we are His children!
What are the those scary waters that God is trying to help you through?
