Peace In The Storm!

Written on 04/01/2020
Rev. Stephen Smith

We are in a storm right now!  Perhaps you feel anxious or even downright fearful about your health and the well-being of those you love and care for most.  Let me encourage you by saying that Fear is a God-given emotion in that it causes us to heighten our awareness of the dangers that are all around us.  Perhaps you are washing your hands more, or cleaning and sanitizing your home more frequently.  These actions are the healthy result of fear and caution. 

Fear has a destructive side as well.  Fear that inspires action to overcome the things that we fear is God inspired, but fear that paralyzes us is not of God.
