by Mark Weinrich
When life’s complications descend like a claustrophobic storm I remember who I am in the Lord. I am clay, He is my Potter. I am a sheep, He is my Shepherd. I am a servant, He is my Master. I am a child, He is my Father. I am a disciple, Jesus is my teacher. I am a friend, Jesus calls me friend. I am a new creature born of His Spirit, born as a citizen into His kingdom. His love reminds me that what seemed overwhelming is merely a sea-calming passage with my Lord. He is making me a message and messenger of grace.
