Fear is tricky. It can be crippling and it can oddly be comforting. Comforting because it tells me how I should feel, and if I feel a certain way, then I feel justifiably ok. But fear is most definitely uncertain. It’s something that feels uncontrollable, and can seemingly feel very real. But oftentimes, it’s just our imagination or the onslaught of the media that amplifies it, only making matters worse. And that’s when it becomes overwhelming. That’s when it becomes crippling. So I try my best not to partner with fear, even if sometimes I find that it’s my tendency to grip to it, as if it’s fears role to comfort me. As if! It’s just the opposite. Fear has no place in my life, and if it’s there, it’s because I’ve invited it in. I’ve allowed it to control me and comfort me. But on the contrary, it’s my faith that comforts me. In all times, but especially in uncertain, fear-induced times, those are the moments I find myself clinging to my faith; namely, my faith in Jesus. I find myself partnering with Him when I don’t have the answers. When I’m scared. When I feel vulnerable. There is a scripture I repeat often in Proverbs in those moments: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him. And He will make your paths straight.” In times of uncertainty, my reliance is dependant on Jesus. My tendency is to trust Him with all of my heart, and to lean not on my own understanding, or misunderstanding, for that matter. The latter doesn’t benefit me. Ever! It only causes me to become more fearful, and I don’t want to give fear any power or authority over me. It’s not invited in my life. But this isn’t just about me. (Continued in the comments)
