When he saw that they were straining at the oars against an adverse wind, he came towards them early in the morning, walking on the sea. - Mark 6:48
Some days are just like this boat ride, aren’t they? We feel as if we are rowing against a contrary wind and waves. We sometimes are working so hard at it that we cannot lift our heads to see who is actually coming towards us across the storm–tossed seas.
Let us pray for the grace to look up and see that we are not alone; Jesus is actually very near.
