Faith: Facing Fear, Moving On
As Ecclesiastes people, we realize that there is a time and a place for everything under the sun. We recognize that life has its own vitality and that the days of our lives are filled with possibilities in what often feels like uncertainty. In the Wisdom literature of the Hebrew Bible, the writers make it clear that God is behind life and thus life is in order, even if it seems to be chaotic. Many times in dealing with fear we forget to praise. We forget these are moments to draw closer to God. Sometimes we are so trapped by what we “used to do” and what “could have” or “should have” been that we cannot exist in the exquisite “moment of now.” Sometimes today is the tomorrow that we dreaded yesterday. When we exist in the now, in the present, we have the possibility of living life at a more consciousness level. Such a level of consciousness reminds us that as we praise, we have opportunities to embrace FAITH, as Fervent Anticipatory Incarnated Total Healing.
