When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. It's a ghost,they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them:Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid.
We cannot imagine the fear they had when Jesus walked on the lake,
They knew Him not, thinking it was a ghost, but oh their sad mistake.
Cries of fear they expressed, and then He spoke soon to them,
Courage He gave them, not derision and scorn; He did not condemn.
He consoled them with words, and then they were not afraid,
He will do the same for you, when you come to Him for His aid.(RP)
A storm was predicted by the forecasters and it is apparently here. Strong winds and rain are the scenario outside right now. They predicted flooding also. We wonder what all this will to the trick or treaters. At our church there is supposed to be an evangelistic outreach from 6-8 this evening. We pray the rain will calm so it will be a success. This afternoon we should also attend the funeral of our neighbor Pastor Oscar Lee. If Margie is well enough, we will. We also hope she had a good night like she did Thursday. Thank you all for praying.
