Fear & Faith.

What if i named my son Fear and my daughter Faith? Then Fear and Faith WOULD co-exist. And if Fear was a Bully then there really wouldn't be anything to fear but fear himself. lol. I would never do that...

The past couple of weeks have been interesting. It all started with the Financial aid office (doesn't it always?) and it involved quite a bit of crying to my mom. (Thanks Mom!) Trying to get things straightened out has been frustrating to say the least. When I would talk to Mom, I would tell her, I know it will all be ok. I have faith it will all be ok. I knew that it would all be ok. But I didn't have the peace and comfort that Faith brings. I was still scared out of my mind that it wouldn't be ok. Luckily, I work at the library and I recently came across a book that had Joseph Smith quotes in it. There was one that of course talked about fear and faith, and when i read it i realized my mistake. I immediately felt peace and comfort flow into my heart. It has been fine ever since. I know it will all work out, my life has been turned upside down for a reason (though still unknown to me) and i will probably benefit from this experience in the future. I'm just glad i know that somebody else can see the whole picture and that He is guiding me to be the best that I can be!

So true Amber. I've been in the same learning boat lately (as far as fear and faith go). Isn't it interesting that we can think we have faith and not realize how truly fearful we're being?

I hope you continue to have that peace. THAT is what's going to make the world of difference.

I love you and am so pleased with the person you have become! Life does get turned upsidedown from time to time but as you said, with Faith, all will turn out for our good.
