If You Wanted Me

Read Matthew 14:22-33

A few deep thoughts for you today, brought to you my one of my favorite song writers, Todd Agnew. I skipped a link to the music today, because quite frankly, YouTube let me down. Also, in my most humble opinion, the lyrics speak so much louder than the melody, I didn't think it would hurt to skip it just this once.

I'll admit I'm glad we're not disciples
Out on a lake paralyzed with fright
'Cause I'm afraid I might have laughed at Peter
Until he stepped into that stormy night

If You wanted me to walk on water
Why'd You make this solid ground seem so right?

I'll admit I'm glad I'm not King David
Ruling over everything I see
'Cause I think I've fallen for more than Bathsheba
Your creation's a temptation for me

If You wanted me to love You only
Why'd you make the moonlight sparkle in her eyes?

I'll admit I'm glad I'm not John the Baptist
In a jail cell waiting for my day to die
'Cause at least down here I know what we're chasing
And it's hard to trust Your dreams are so much better than mine

If You wanted me to die to myself
Why'd You make me fall so deeply in love with life?

If You wanted me to surrender
Why'd You make these hands able to hold on so tight?

If You wanted me to be like You
Why'd You make me like me?

Picture yourself on that storm tossed sea watching an apparition coming toward you on the waves. And consider Jesus' question: "Why did you doubt?"

Why do you doubt?
