"Day is ended, dim my eyes, But journey long before me lies. Farewell, friends! I hear the call. The ship's beside the stony wall. Foam is white and waves are grey; Beyond the sunset leads my way. Foam is salt, the wind is free; I hear the rising of the Sea." J.J. Tolkien 

Sailing in a storm on the water would seem scary...but we know Jesus actually walked on water.  He invited Peter, one of the Disciples, to follow him on the water.  As Peter stepped out of the boat his eyes were on Jesus and he took quite a few successful steps. As soon as he took his eye off Jesus, and saw the rising wind and waves... he began to sink. Immediately Jesus came to him, grabbing him before he went under the rolling sea and said,"Ye of little faith". 

Why do we forget to keep our eyes on Jesus in the rough times and rough seas we encounter in our lives. If we are surrendered to him, it means leaving the fears and worries with him. We cannot fail if we do that. No matter what the journey is, HE is with each of us. He will never leave us or forsake us. His unfailing love comforts us. 

“In repentance and rest I am save, in quietness and truth is my strength." Isaiah 30:15
