14:22 Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds.
14:23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,
14:24 but by this time the boat, battered by the waves, was far from the land, for the wind was against them.
14:25 And early in the morning he came walking toward them on the sea.
14:26 But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear.
14:27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.”
14:28 Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”
14:29 He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came toward Jesus. 14:30 But when he noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!”
14:31 Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”
14:32 When they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
There is a faith in loving fiercely
the one who is rightfully yours,
especially if you have waited years
and especially if part of your never believed
you could deserve this loved
and beckoning hand held out to you this way.
I am thinking of faith now
and the testaments of loneliness
and what we feel we are worthy of in this world.
Years ago in the Hebrides,
I remember an old man
who walked every morning
on the grey stones to the shores
of the baying seals,
who would press his hat to his chest i
n the blustering salt wind
and say his prayer to the turbulent Jesus
hidden in the water,
and I think of the story of the storm
and everyone waking
and seeing the distant,
yet familiar figure,
far across the water calling to them,
and how we are all waiting for that abrupt waking,
and that calling,
and that moment we have to say yes,
except, it will not come so grandly,
but more subtly and intimately,
in the face of the one you know you have to love.
So that when we finally step out of the boat toward them,
we find everything holds us,
and everything confirms our courage,
and if you wanted to drown you could,
but you don’t,
because finally after all this struggle
and all these years,
you don’t want to any more,
you’ve simply had enough of drowning,
and you want to live
and you want to love
and you will walk across any territory
and any darkness,
however fluid and however dangerous,
to take the one hand you know belongs in yours.
