Floating From Faith To Fear

The Lord is my light, and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1 Do you ever feel as if you are going through your life, floating from faith to fear? When times are good, you float high on faith. Praise flows freely from your mouth, giving God high fives, and plenty of halleuiahs. You praise dance all over the room, smiling comes naturally. You truly believe the Son is shining in your life. But, what happens when you, or someone you love, receive bad news from a doctor? Or, you lose your job? Or, a loved one passes away? All of a sudden, you begin to float down to fear, clouds begin to cover the Son in your life. You replace your smiles, with frowns. The praises that were flowing freely, are now rare occurrences. Instead, you begin to moan, and groan. Praise dancing has stopped, you now just stomp your feet, and say why? Why me? Why is this happening? I am afraid. I am worried, stressed, etc. Stop!! Quit floating around in outer space people. Choose to float in faith always, floating higher, and higher. Fearful times will come, that is part of life. But, remain in your faith. God can, and will help you float above your fears. Faith is bigger than any fear you have, or will have. So, hold on my friends, and let's float through life together. Woo Hoo, here we go.
