First Steps in Faith…praying with the art of Robin Jensen



First Steps in Faith…
"Come…"
Boldly I step out of the boat toward the Shining Light, 
Ripples radiating behind me with each step. Fish watch in amazement… I'm walking to Jesus on the water!
This is so cool… 
The Shining light beckons me. 
I'm wrapped in His Light Floating on and on… 
Lighter than sea foam in the wind, Dancing from wave to wave… 
My eyes wide open… I'm bold… 
Why is that rooster walking behind me?
Are my feet getting heavy? 
Matthew 14:29
