It is I. Be not afraid.

At different points in my life when I have been confused and doubting, God has whispered ‘It is I. Be not afraid’.

Today, a friend shared this lovely poem on Facebook, which has obviously been based on the verse:

The adverse winds blew against my life;
My little ship with grief was tossed;
My plans were gone—heart full of strife,
And all my hope seemed to be lost—
“Then He arose”—one word of peace.
“There was a calm”—a sweet release.
A tempest great of doubt and fear
Possessed my mind; no light was there
To guide, or make my vision clear.
Dark night! ’twas more than I could bear—
“Then He arose,” I saw His face—
“There was a calm” filled with His grace.
My heart was sinking ‘neath the wave
Of deepening test and raging grief;
All seemed as lost, and none could save,
And nothing could bring me relief—
“Then He arose”—and spoke one word,
“There was a calm!””IT IS THE LORD.”
