25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.
26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.
27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
Jesus meets us in the midst of the storms of life. He comes to us when we are in need.
He comforts us with His presence.
Even if we think the worst, He calms our fears.
We can come to Him with any emotion and be honest with Him about our need.
Let’s rely on Him today to meet us right where we are at.
