  1. Beautiful Truth!
    And just last evening I was studying Jesus’s words in John 8 where He says He is the Light of the World, which reminded me of His words in the Sermon on the Mount saying WE are the light of the world. How wonderful that we are invited to reflect His light!

  2. Stephanie,
    What an awesome question to ask!! So often we want Jesus to join us in OUR agendas, but we’ve got it backwards. Oh to be part of HIS miracles here on earth. When I said, “Here I am, Lord,” Jesus answered in a huge way. He asked me to partner with Him to start a Christian school for orphans and destitute children in a terror-ridden country, smack dab in the devil’s backyard. This country, brimming with extremists, terrorists, human trafficking, child slave labor, child prostitution, extremist recruitment is fertile ground for the love of Jesus. If you’d like to join us in bringing His love to this forgotten land, check out our website: http://redeemerchristianfoundation.org/ or visit our website: https://www.facebook.com/rcf.rocks/. Great post and question to ponder, Stephanie!

    • I love to see how you are joining Jesus in His work in another area of our world. Thank you!!

  3. Very powerful message that speaks to me and what I am about to embark on! Our regular community that visit these posts everyday and are the first few to comment hear me go on and on about this trip to Cambodia (in less than 3 weeks) that God has orchestrated all the steps for me to go…this whole Masters! It’s something I want and have prayed endlessly over yet I find this week unexplainable anxiety and stress at the thought! Fear. I hate anxiety and it’s reared it’s ugly head. I am doing all I can to help alleviate it and it is slowly working but I don’t understand it. Anyway, choose to like Peter, will step out of the boat and openly, willingly from this vulnerable position to join Jesus in working with him, because of him, in his plan for me and do this/his work. I will walk on water with him whilst praying all the time for reassurance provided by his arms for love, security and protection.

    Thank you for this post!

  4. I love this story of your daughter.. Yes it is awesome when our kids are not scared of what others think and fully embrace the word of God. My daughter was in 4th grade when she was caught at the school for soliciting religious cards to her classmates in school. I received the call from the principle who clearly was displeased that she had done such a thing in a public school setting. Inside I was so happy that she was bold enough to share the gospel. Upon being asked why she did this, she simply stated that she too wanted to share His message and be that light for those who may need it. The school may not had approved but I know I sure did.. Thank you for sharing this message about taking that bold step into joining Jesus in His work. Miracles are happening every day.

    • What a sweet girl you have. I love the heart of child like faith. May we each carry that kind of faith with us always.

  5. Stephanie, I needed this today. Often I look down at the risks and problems I’m sinking in instead of looking to Jesus to guide me miraculously across the water. Faith in him is our best contribution to anything he has planned for us. Thank you for reminding me this morning where my eyes should be.

  6. Thank you for sharing. This is a word in season. My Pastor just started a sermon series titled Water Walkers. I am in the posture to receive and pray for courage to continue looking up and out; so that when (not if) the winds blow I will be reminded that if Jesus bid me to come, He is more than able to hold me up.

    • I love the title of being a Water Walker. Such a visible reminder of God’s faithfulness .

    • Kathy,

      Congratulations on your book! I pray it helps many women!! May God continue to bless you & your endeavors!!

      Blessings 🙂

  7. Stephanie, this was so good! I love this story in the Bible, and I feel like every time I read it, it points to something new and beautiful. Thank you for revealing another precious truth: I want to walk on water! I want to join Jesus in His miracles, both big and small, and just be with Him. Your words were just so refreshing and good.

    Thank you!


  8. And through the walk and miracle we see God and feel loved. Thank you for your sweetness shown through your words and tj love you share with your daughter

  9. Wow Stephanie,
    Thank-you for this beautifully put together post. So sweet of your daughter to think as she does. I appreciate your thoughts on how even by doing everyday tasks, (fill in), we can walk on water with Jesus too. Lot’s to absorb.
    Have a blessed day all,

  10. Stephanie,

    Children teach us so much about life. They are fearless & don’t care about what the world thinks of them. They just know they want to do things. We could learn a lot from children. A few years ago God had me on a journey of dealing with my aging father’s dementia. He was hospitalized. I was scared. All I could do was rely completely on God, His plans & timing.He allowed me to witness a miracle & healed him. Dad went from not being allowed outside for fear of him walking away to being able to go on short bus trips with others from the assisted living he moved to. Now I’m on a different “water walk” with Him. Earlier this year my 90 year old FIL had Stage III bladder cancer surgery. He survived & is doing ok for now. So blessed to witness this miracle. My journey continues with both in-laws. MIL has health issues & is trying to care for FIL. I get to cook & gather food for them. It’s one thing Jesus & I can do. Don’t want her to have to cook all the time. Plus I enjoy doing it. I know God sees all this & will bless me down the road.

    Blessings 🙂
