When You’re Afraid

Coronavirus, climate change, health concerns, finances…the list of concerns, global and personal, can be overwhelming. Fear rises up and like a fierce taskmaster it drives us to exhaustion of body, mind, and spirit. This is Elijah’s story. But his story has another voice. This voice invites us to remember we are never alone. God is with us. This voice invites us to lie down in green pastures, to be restored by God’s presence and love. Elijah, driven and harried, finds himself renewed and able to face the same circumstances that had driven him to despair. So it can be for us too if we listen for the still small voice amidst the clamor of fear-inducing circumstances. Peace be with you.
