The Terrors of Faith

image

Truth be told, faith is terrifying.

Trusting God for change implies that we cannot be in charge of the outcome, that we must become dependent.

And if trust, rather than workable goals, is the basis of my eternal destiny, I am at risk, needy, vulnerable.

“The spark behind fear, recognized as life, leaps into flame, always this energy smolders inside, when it remains unlit, the body fills with dense smoke.” -David Whyte-

Without risk, we can never experience love. Without trust, we are our own savior.

Can you sit with the grey? Can you accept the loss of control? I dare you to let go… to seize life.


Psalms 27: 9-10

“You have been my help; don’t leave me, don’t abandon me, O God, my savior. My father and mother may abandon me, but the LORD will take care of me.”
