FIGHT FEAR WITH FAITH
As Jesus brought peace to the turbulent waters, so will God through Jesus Christ bring peace to the troubled heart of the sinner who repents.
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
In today's first reading from the second Book of Samuel, grace was given for repentance, and David quickly responded by admitting, "I have sinned against the Lord." The Lord immediately forgave David, even though it was necessary that David be deprived of the fruit of his adultery. David really had no excuse for his sin. He was the favored of the Lord. He had everything he should have ever desired. When his greed led to adultery and murder God could have washed His hands of him. But God is not that way.
 
What this episode tells us is that although God does not ignore sin, He is eager to grant forgiveness. He condemns sin only so that the sinner may repent, no matter how bad the sin may be. There is a question you may ask. Does it matter to God that a sinner is about to drown? It certainly does. As Jesus brought peace to the turbulent waters, so will God through Jesus Christ bring peace to the troubled heart of the sinner who repents.
 
Through turbulent waters and troubled times fear sets in us. How can we fight fear? Why are we at times afraid? Where is our Faith? Whenever we encounter trouble, Jesus is there with the same reassuring message. "It is I, do not be afraid." Faith is an entirely free gift that God makes to all of us.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder. The song lyrics Put One Foot in Front of the Other - from Santa Claus is Comin' To Town,
 
Put one foot in front of the other. And, soon you'll be walking cross the floor.
You, put one foot in front of the other, And, soon you'll be walking out the door.
You never will get where you're going. If ya never get up on your feet.
Come on; there's a good tail wind blowin' a fast waling man is hard to beat.

 
If you want to change your direction. If you're time of life is at hand.
Well, don't be the rule, be the exception. A good way to start is to stand.
If I want to change the reflection. I see in the mirror each morn. Oh, you do.
You mean that it's just my election. Just that.
To vote for a chance to be reformed? Woo Hoo.
