It takes the light, putting the cap over the lens. Like a heavy fog to block the peripheral vision. It surrounds joy with sorrow. Taking the good things, and putting a cloud of distress over them. It’s the blindfold over logic. It’s the waves trying to cover the footprints.
Fear. Fear of tomorrow, fear over yesterday, fear over present. Trying to suffocate the joy we feel. The worry, the stress, that consumes lives. Fear over the unknown, fear over the good things, fear over money, fear of loss, fear trying to spread over the life we cherish.
But there’s a light that shines over the darkness. Love has already conquered death. Our Savior has already won. The very Creator that created all things, the One who holds our universe in His hands. Faith over this stress. Remember, you and me were made in the image of God. Why do we not trust in our Creator, when He even provides for the birds of the air, creatures of land and sea?
He will give you everything you’ll ever need in life, not everything we desire from world view. From our very first heartbeat, to our very last, He will be there for us. Such peace that comes when we only fear God in life, such warmth knowing our Lord as our shepherd keeping watch. When the coldness of fear comes in, let His warming fire bring it out. The light shining into the dark showing us what’s really in sight.
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
