Poem: Walking on water!

Updated on September 3, 2013

Introduction!

Have you ever read the story where Jesus walked on the water. This poem was inspired by that historical event.

My poems it's not about literary accomplishment, but about touching hearts and witnessing through poetry.

Take some time and read this inspiring poem!

Walking on water!

Wind in my face
Gold as the sun fades
Brown as rock
Leather skinned.


Looking up
Water sprays
Beams moan
As the water splash.


The storm approach
No fear to appear
Many a storm
Face to face.


I see the face
Straining to see
Imagination to calm
A storm to face.


On the wave
This is not real
Not only a face
But a man to appear.


Shock and fear
Color drains from my face
Grabbing the rope
Frozen to stare.


Be still and come
Walk! He spoke
Yes my Lord
Walking on water.


But …. Lord
Sink to the deep
Grabbed to safety
The Storm struck.


Be still He said
Silence at last
Who is this Man
Walking on Water.


Truly He must be
Yes, He is the One
Definitely the Savior
Save me from unbelief.

Bible story!

Mat 14:23    And after he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into the mountain apart to pray: and when even was come, he was there alone.

Mat 14:24    But the boat was now in the midst of the sea, distressed by the waves; for the wind was contrary.

Mat 14:25    And in the fourth watch of the night he came unto them, walking upon the sea.

Mat 14:26    And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a ghost; and they cried out for fear.

Mat 14:27    But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

Mat 14:28    And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee upon the waters.

Mat 14:29    And he said, Come. And Peter went down from the boat, and walked upon the waters to come to Jesus.

Mat 14:30    But when he saw the wind, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, Lord, save me.

Mat 14:31    And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and took hold of him, and saith unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

Mat 14:32    And when they were gone up into the boat, the wind ceased.

Jesus walking on water!
