Our lives in this world encounter stormy seas. Peter put his confidence in Christ when he encountered Him on the stormy sea when he heard Him say “Come,” and stepped out of the boat. Choices can be easy when free of life's waves. When we face choices of where or how to step in our stormy seas, where does our confidence lie? Whose voice do we heed? On what do we base our choices? From which tree do we eat?
