breathe

Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them,“Who do the crowds say I am?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life.” “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “God’s Messiah.”

Who do we say He is? Are we living our life so that anyone looking at us could answer the question for us? Do our actions light up the path and show others that He is the Christ, the Son of the Living God? What images are we reflecting?

Are we walking by faith, confidently believing that His plans for us are good- no matter how they may seem at this exact moment. Are we looking beyond our own initial insecurities and trusting in His path? He is already there- in the next moment, and in the one after that. We can relax, and breath, and know that forever and always is under His control.

Lord it’s so hard for me to see
Where this is going
And where You’re leading me
I wish I knew how
All my fears and all my questions
Are gonna play out
In a world I can’t control
When I’m lost in the mystery
To You my future is a memory
Cause You’re already there
