Don't be afraid!

(Octavius Winslow)

Are you going through a sorrowful affliction?

"Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid!"
    Matthew 14:27

What a Friend,
what a Brother,
what a Helper,
is Jesus!

Never, no never, does He leave His suffering
child to travel that mournful night unvisited
and unsoothed by His presence.

He is with you now.

His faithfulness never falters.

His love never changes.

His tenderness never lessens.

His patience never wearies.

His grace never decays.

His watchfulness never slumbers.

Jesus loves to visit us in the stormy night of
our grief. He says, "It is I. Don't be afraid!"

The incarnate God delights to be near His
helpless and timid children. He is near to
you as the strength of your sinking soul.

"And surely I am with you always, even to
 the very end of the world." Matthew 28:20
