Take heart, it is I, have no fear

Isaiah 53:3-4: He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he took up our infirmities and he carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.
  Let us Pray ...
Heavenly Father, God Almighty, your plan to redeem us takes our breath away. Why you chose to take your precious son and expose him to such public disgrace while he was on earth we will never comprehend. But this we do know: you love us with an everlasting love and we will serve you with all of our strength in thanks for his great sacrifice. Thank you for your love. In the name of Infant Jesus, my Lord and Savior, we pray. Amen.

When disasters and trials threaten to overpower you, how do you react? With horror and panic, or with faith and trust in God's care and presence with you? Aren’t we like the disciples when we understanding trials and hardship? While the Lord may at times appear distant to us, he, nonetheless is continually present at our side. The scripture tells again us that the Lord is a very present help in difficulty. Whatever storms make overwhelmed us, he promises to bring us to our preferred haven.

When they saw Jesus walking on the water, they thinking he was a evil spirit waiting for their about to happen destruction.
