Like Mark Healey, we as Jesus followers seem to face a lot of "sharks" in our Christian walk in life as we learn to face our fears and allow God to use us where He would have us go into "waters teeming with ferocities." But when we learn to walk by faith and not by sight we find very quickly that these waters are "home" to our earth-bound travels. And that growing in faith must begin first as a "daily, new, untried" experience that can quickly envelop us beyond all those barriers in life that once seemed to overwhelm us and made us quit from fear and uncertainty. Soon, though, we will find ourselves very comfortable in living the Christian faith as Jesus showed us how to live it. For it requires an open heart. It requires courage. It requires wisdom. Prayer, resources, study, and knowledge. And most of all it requires belief that God can use us when we make ourselves available, prepared, and open to his leading. May the Spirit of God grant to you all His divine resources and more this very day of your faith walk with our eternal, almighty God.

"For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong." (2 Cor 12.10, ESV)
