The reason many people can’t swim is because they were taught
fear of water rather than respect for water.

I remember as a child when at the lake as I went near the water
being told, “Get away from there!”

I was taught at an early age to be afraid of the water.

The disciples became afraid for their lives as the storm
raged while Jesus slept in the lower parts of the boat. When Jesus woke up,
before He rebuked the winds and the waves, He rebuked their fear and lack of faith…

Matthew 8:23-27

23Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him.24And suddenly a great
tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He
was asleep.25Then
His disciples came toHimand awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save
us! We are perishing!”

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
