Focus On Christ, Not My Doubts

Today I will focus on Christ and not on my doubts. Peter lost focus, allowing his survival instinct to override faith. We need the superhuman instinct given only by the Holy Spirit to keep our eyes on Christ and walk through the storms of life. Regardless, Christ will...
