Daily Digest #68

He said to them, "Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?" Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. —Matthew 8:26

Sometimes we wonder if we could ever keep holding on at times of great fear and risk. But when we analyze the situation and ourselves, it is basically fear that disables us to keep going, or even take the first step. We tend to escape or ignore the situation because we sometimes limit our own capabilities and strengths. We think we are always in control, and we do not want to hold ourselves responsible of any mistake or pain. But sometimes, mistakes and pain happen. They naturally come, even when it is not of our own doing. It is in what we do with it that matters. Do we continue putting faith in ourselves alone? Or do we share the load with Jesus Christ, our Savior? Should we keep ignoring God's call and fail to trust His ways? Must we continue running our lives our own way?

Things always have ways of getting done and fixed even without our aid. This only shows that Someone far greater and powerful is in control. May we learn to trust God's ways. May we keep a close relationship to His Son, Jesus Christ. May we not forget that God will never give us anything we cannot bear. And may we remember that with God, nothing is impossible. Pray always.
