Looking back at the question Jesus posed to Peter (in John 21) 'Do you love me?', I firmly believe this is where we need to start. Our love-relationship with Jesus is of paramount importance! Once we catch a glimpse of that love, in His love He begins to shine His marvelous Light in areas of our lives that need His gentle, but sure Hand of Guidance and Counsel. In Why did you Doubt? I look at 6 more real-life experiences that Simon Peter had with Jesus in the Gospels which all deal with the lack of faith that Peter had but the potential of faith that Jesus believed could be watered and blossomed into a firm foundation on which He would build His church (Matt. 16:18)

Since beginning my writing journey with a devotional on Psalms 23 (found on NoiseTrade), my heart was stirred with one question: What if we could reflect as honestly as the psalmists do? What if we dare to be as honest with our emotions as the psalmists are? How would that change our relationship with our Creator? In all of my writings, I dare to ask the questions that few do. As you read my thoughts, hear the resounding answer from your Creator Who loves us and proclaims YOU ARE MINE.
