Let us lay our burdens on Him and not carry them with us, as He is our every good thing, much more than we could fathom. He is someone whose love and sacrifice we can’t explain, and He is our alpha and omega who knows us inside out. He wouldn’t want to do anything without our will, but when we go to Him, taste His love, we can understand that our soul has found rest.
We just need to come to Him whether we think we are ready or not. We can never change ourselves by our own efforts, we need God to help us come out of our sinful ways. If we think that we will first try and cleanse our ways ourselves or wait for us to grow old and then come to Him, we are absolutely in the wrong direction. God died for our sins and rose victoriously proving to us that there is an eternal life for us, much better than what we would expect in this world. He has done more than enough for us, now it is up to us to go to Him.

Paul took baptism and traded in his old life for a new one. The man who breathed murderous threats against the disciples of Christ was now not ashamed to proclaim the same Gospel to everyone. That encounter opened his eyes to the Wonder of Jesus.
The song ‘Oceans’, is a reminiscence of Peter walking on water. After feeding the 5000 Jesus sent his disciples ahead of him to reach Gennesaret by boat while he dispersed the crowds and went up into the mountain to pray. When evening fell the boat the disciples had sailed about three and half miles into the Sea of Galilee. Jesus saw the disciples in the boat distressed by the waves; for the wind was contrary
