Walking on Today's Water

I'm reading Rachel Held Evans book, Inspired.  Chapter 6 includes a section called "The Sea;' it begins with a modern retelling of Peter and Jesus walking on water.  The story begins with a pastor on a boat during a tour that includes the Sea of Galilee during a storm.  As lightning strikes, they turn back to shore, and the man (Pete) sees Jesus walking towards the boat. On the water.

It was a little disconcerting to read the story.  Modern, but with Jesus walking on the water.  It made me wonder - where in our lives do we find Jesus walking on the water?

It would be an unexpected place during an unexpected time.  When in your life have you been down, even to the point of doubting the presence of God, and then found God walking on the water toward you?

When in your life have you needed to see Christ, walking toward you? And found him?

When in your life have you taken the risk, stepped out on the water, and been Christ for someone else who desperately needed him?

Can you watch for Christ? Can you take the risk to step out and be the hands of feet of Christ, present for someone else?
