It Is I


 

It is I
don’t be afraid
of how this looks
to you

be of good cheer
for I have come
to redeem and to
rescue.

You establish my rescue.

“Then He saw them straining at rowing, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night, He came to them walking on the sea, and would have passed them by. But when they saw Him walking on the sea, they supposed it was a ghost, and cried out; for they all saw Him and were troubled. And immediately He talked with them and said to them, ‘Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.’ ” Mark 6:48,49,50 NKJV

Grab Ahold

 

I love it when
you reach out

and in faith
grab ahold

believing Me
instead of

the lies
you’ve been told.

You establish my faith to believe.

“And He said to her, ‘Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace and be healed of your affliction.’ While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, ‘Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further.’ As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, ‘Do not be afraid; only believe.’ ” Mark 5:34,35,36 NKJV

Scattered Seed

 

You may
not know
exactly
how

but trust Me
to grow
what you
sow now.

You establish my sowing.

“And He said, ‘The Kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how.’ ” Mark 4:26,27 NKJV

No Matter What

 

All that I
have planned

you will be able
to do

no matter what
is said

or conspired
against you.

You establish a way for me in the midst of opposition.

“He said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand.’ And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored as whole as the other. Then the Pharisees went out and immediately plotted with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.” Mark 3:5,6 NKJV

Teaching And Preaching

 

I will teach
and preach to you

the wonderful
word of God

in ways you can
believe, receive –

new wineskins of
My love.

You establish Your word to me.

“Immediately many gathered together, so that there was no longer room to receive them, not even near the door. And He preached the word to them. Then He went out again by the sea, and all the multitude came to Him, and He taught them. ‘And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.’ ” Mark 2:2,13,22

You establish where I go.

Seeing

clouding my view

 

Lies can be wiped away with God’s truth.

 

“So Jesus answered and said to him, ‘What do you want Me to do for you?’ The blind man said to Him, ‘Ra-bo’ni, that I may receive my sight .’  Then Jesus said to him, ‘Go your way; your faith has made you well.’ And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.” Mark 10:51-52 NKJV

Surprises

thunderstorms

and fluctuating temps –

lawn surprises

The combination of adverse human conditions can have amazing outcomes  . . .with God.

Stone Roller

“And they said among themselves, ‘Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?'” Mark 16:3

The women just wanted to get to Jesus.

Thank You, Lord, for clearing a way for us to come to You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Oh Lord
please roll away
whatever it
may be

that ever keeps me
from believing
You are always here
with me.

God bless you as you come to Him today.

Answering Nothing

“Then Pilate asked Him again, saying, ‘Do You answer nothing? See how many things they testify against You?”  Mark 15:4

“But Jesus still answered nothing, so that Pilate marveled.” Mark 15:5

Lies and accusations can steal our peace, time and energy.

Thank You, Lord, for being the truth we can respond to. And here’s a simple poem . . .

So many lies and accusations

are spoken and inferred

but I don’t have to worry

or give back a single word

 

for I have a Good Shepherd

who speaks Truth to me each day

to Him I will respond

listen and obey.

God bless you as He speaks Truth to you today!
