Fear is human. So is bravery and grace.
On this Sunday and every day, let us remember, doubt and it’s sibling fear, can actually bring us closer in faith. Do not let this pair overtake you in the time of Shelter in Place.
If you are scared now or uneasy, that is perfectly normal. It does not mean you have a lapse in faith.
For even Christ asked, “Why have you forsaken me?”
Remember in fear, Peter denied Christ, and was still chosen to build his church. Paul was a tax collector and worse. Paul went blind and was frightened. But, he then went on to write much in the New Testament.
Never let what others would size upon as failures or short comings or moments of fear, pull you away from the understanding created by God’s love and with purpose. We are not and never will be perfect. We were not made to be so.
Shelter in place? Isn’t that what was asked during Passover as we learned in the Torah, or Torat Moshe?
In the Quran it is written, “The reward of goodness is nothing but goodness. (Al Quran 55:61)”. Does it mention we won’t at times be fearful?
Fear and uneasiness are part of being human.
But even more so is Faith, Bravery and Grace.
