31 Days of Seeing God in the Mess of Real Life

Day 13 -step out of the boat daily challenge


I can’t get that boat story out of my head.

You know the one where Jesus walks on water and Peter asks to come out of the boat…

Peter said to Him, ” Lord if it is You command me to come to You on the water”.

And He said, ” Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. – Matthew 14:28-29

Some days, a part of me – deep down – desires to get out of the boat.

To live a little.

To live boldly.

To stop being that boring accountant type person and just take a risk.

To hear the Holy Spirit say – go talk to that person – and then JUST DO IT.

To follow His promptings and give generously.

To stand up amongst God’s people and pray courageously.

To meet the needs of the lonely with His loveliness.

To smile at the angry.

To just Step out of the Boat!


Dear God

Please help me to see you walking on water in my day.

Help me to step out of the boat and walk courageously with you.

In name of Jesus, Amen , So be it!


I would love to hear how you discover God in your messy real everyday life too – please leave a comment
