Fear can be paralyzing but Faith always prevails

During this pandemic, it was a season of uncertainty for our faith, family, health, employment and finances. We have often felt overwhelmed with desperation, despair and hopelessness. We become paralyzed with fear, doubt and dismay wandering where we will find the basic necessities. Just the things that we regularly take for granted are now the commodities that are in demand. Just not being able to find toilet paper, water and hand sanitizer in light of this pandemic is enough to cause masses of fear. According to Merriam-Webster, fear is defined as an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger; reason for alarm. It is true that fear is a common emotion that we all have dealt with and/or are dealing with. But we must not let fear and anxiety overtake us. This is a time when we have to have faith to believe that things won't always be like this. Unlike fear, faith is the opposing force. Faith is a belief and trust with a strong conviction. Faith says even though things may look bad, good will always prevails. Faith says that there are resources available to help in the time of need. Faith speaks to calm the weary soul when there is unrest. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. In every situation, we must allow faith to outweigh our fear.
