Faith or Fear

Every morning they rise and make me choose… faith or fear.

Which one will it be?christmas house

Faith stands tall with a light… calling.  Quietly.

Fear rolls at my feet like an under current, longing to pull me down.

They both ask me to believe in something I cannot see.

Today I choose faith.  Again, and again, and again.

When the difficult rises today, Lord… I trust you.

When the ugly words come… help me speak peace.

For the ones in pain today… I believe you heal.

And as loved ones travel home… guide them with your light.

  1. Oh, yes! We are challenged every day to choose faith. As a family member sets out onto the snowy highway today… as more family tackles the roads to come here on Saturday… I want to trust in His promises. I love Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

  2. Good perspective – to be aware of making the choice. Not as a helpless stand-by, but a participant.
    We have family here, with more coming and going over the weekend. Busy days, but fun! Have a wonderful holiday, full of blessings.
