“Be not perplexed
Be not afraid
God does not change
Patience wins all things
He who has God lacks nothing
God alone suffices” (Teresa of Avila).
That’s the key. Simple trust. In all circumstances and in every moment, God is enough.
Pandemics pass, viruses die out, no trial lasts forever.
Fear can make you short-sighted. Fear can make you forget God. Fear will flat out lie to you.
But God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love and a sound mind.
Faith and not fear is what wins. Not so much because faith is strong but because the God of our faith is strong and able.
