In the boat

So, for a little while, I have been in an interesting place in my prayerful imagination with Christ. I keep seeing us in a boat and a storm is raging all around. I am standing next to him, touching him, holding onto his robe and I am watching him rule the wind and the waves. Almost like watching a movie with him, but he is causing everything to happen. I love it. I am in awe and wonder watching his Authority and Power and Justice. I keep having this expectant feeling that I will begin to understand and see things; like I will get to know him more intimately. I would really like that. I would really like to stretch and grow. There is such an incredible peace that fills me.

There are wind and waves in my life right now; and this picture is about that. The wind and waves are a burden and I feel them, but it is different than other times. I am finding myself able to remain quite calm and peaceful and held in a new way. I am able to stay present in the moment I am in and am able to be prayerful in my heart about the wind and waves. This is interesting and new for me. I wonder how long it will last...
