Faith: Facing Fear, Moving On
When fraught with fear, despair, and hopelessness we are reminded to have the faith at least the size of the mustard seed. Our faith may not always be strong, but we are called to be ever vigilant and prayerful. The increase in fear often means the decrease in our faith. Pretending fear is not present is not realistic, nor is it realistic to think we can live life to the fullest without a visit from fear. By embracing fear we learn that the fear is not bigger than we are or stronger than our faith. When we experience our faith as a gift from God and are closely connected to God, we are enfolded in a life preserver of grace. Threads of grace surround us for our Creator cares for us deeply. We experience God’s revelatory nature in wo we are and in the glorious riches of nature that surround us.
