"Then Peter got down out of the boat,
 walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
  But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and,
 beginning to sink, cried out, " Lord, save me!"

Matthew 14:29, 30

my eyes
on the One.
Who knows, who loves, who cries.
my heart 
on the immovable Rock.
Who stabilizes, secures, is unyielding.
my mind
on enduring Truth and Goodness.
My underpinning, my bedrock, my infrastructure.
my body
to the healing road of Life.
Sound, flourishing, wholeness.

Fix all of me, God,
on Your face.
And on Your extended hand to me.
The one stretched out across the rising waves all around me -
For You are ready to save.
I see it in Your face;
it is fixed with love on me.

Save me, O God,
from this ocean of emotions!
from tumultuous waves of fear & sadness,
from tides of regret & loss...
Calm the storm - the one inside me.

my eyes, 
O God.
My heart, mind & body, too.
Focus all of me...on all of You.
my eyes.

¨...let us run with perseverance the race 
marked out for us.  Let us fix our eyes
on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith...¨

Hebrews 12:1,2
