Be Not Afraid

by Lydia Regan


I would like to share the following biblical passage with our community. When I was about 14, I read a book, Be Not Afraid, about a little boy with epilepsy, and it contained what became one of my favorite biblical passages because it has calmed and comforted me and reminded me to always trust in God.  I hope it does the same for everyone else who reads or hears it.


Mark 6:48-50 

(New American Bible, Revised Edition)

Then he saw that they were tossed about while rowing, for the wind was against them. About the fourth watch of the night, he came toward them walking on the sea. He meant to pass by them.

But when they saw him walking on the sea, they thought it was a ghost and cried out.

They had all seen him and were terrified. But at once he spoke with them, “Take courage, it is I, do not be afraid!”
