The apparition in the stormy night, when I’m rowing hard with all my might, and terror rises like waves that threaten to overwhelm my inadequate boat —
Oh, Lord Jesus! Teach me that the thing that scares me most is truly nothing to fear.
Because it’s YOU! Walking on the terrible waters of my life, bringing Hope and Calm and Salvation.
And when you are with me, this boat cannot sink.
And (whether it feels like it or not) all will be good.
