FAITH AND FEAR
January 12, 2014

He was a man of faith they said

As they said their last goodbyes

We know he rests with God

and is in a better place



Faith in something bigger and faith in the God who made you

Faith carries so many people through

The tribulations of earth life

Inevitably coming our way



And yet we use faith in so many less meaningful ways

We have faith that our teams first starter will win his playoff game

and we have faith that the 5:20 will arrive sometime very near to 5:20

and that the pilot on Flight 43 got plenty of sleep last night

and that every driver on every road that my 16 year old drives on today

will stay where they belong



But all of those lesser faith plans are only wishes

All faith stems from faith in God

Only then can you have the faith that fends off fear
