“Faith” is fear transformed by the act of our own will, calling to mind the strength of God, and clinging to it.
So on occasions of fear, see them as opportunities to spark it into faith. Fear and faith do blend, thank God. They are like oil and water in a man’s or woman’s soul, and the oil will float above and quiet the waves.
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise—
in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?
