Last night, I had the opportunity to spend time with the Lord after attending a discipleship conference in church. There were so many issues and ideas that I wanted to process with God, but He allowed me to focus on one concern — the UNBELIEF in my heart.
By His grace, I do get to spend time with Him and His Word and apply the lessons He has been teaching me, especially when it comes to taking steps of faith. However, I realized that whenever I pray, there are still hints of worry and doubt in my heart. The Lord made it clear to me this weekend to finally get rid of them. I read James 1:5-6 and Matthew 14:22-33 to remind myself of what it means to trust in Jesus. I couldn’t imagine what Peter felt when Jesus asked him to walk on the water, but this story inspired me to keep my eyes on Jesus too.
I ended the night with a new chorus in my heart and I woke up this morning writing the rest of the song. It is entitled “Eyes on You” and it is about Matthew 14:22-33 and how there really is no reason for us to doubt who God is and what He is able to do. I hope this song will also encourage you to trust in Him too!
