        There are three kinds of Faith, that come to mind when we put our Faith in Jesus Christ.

                Struggling faith;  like a person floundering and fearful in deep water.

        Clinging faith; like a person hanging to the side of a boat.

         Resting faith;  which finds a person safe inside the boat-----strong and secure to reach out his hand to help someone else.

         We notice each person had faith. Each knew the boat was his only hope,but of the three only one had a resting faith.  Only one had discovered he could actually be in the boat---where all he had to do was rest.

          This is the kind of faith God wants us to have---a faith that trust Him totally.

          Unfortunately sometimes we discover its reality only after we have endured struggling or clinging faith.

           Sometimes we only realize we can get in the boat when the storms rages and we cry out to God with new faith.

           Then our savior graciously says, "Come to Me---- and I will give you rest."

                                 Matt.  11:28

           Are you in the boat or out of the boat?
