From Faith to Fear And Back Again — 3 Comments

  1. Thanks, Holland, for sharing your testimony. I love the tie-in to Exodus 16:3. Reading a modern day example of overcoming fear makes this relatable. I also like your comment, “What I saw as a stop sign, God saw as a necessary detour to something beyond my expectations.” That is so true in so many of our lives! Thank you for sharing your perspective, and how God arranged His best for you, your children, your parent, and your dog. God did for you beyond what you could imagine.

  2. This was excellent, Holland. Thanks for sharing. What a huge gift of faith to trust God like that. I’m glad you made it out alive.
    I’ve had a hard time with huge circumstances like that. I’ve tried to grow my faith in God with little things. He’s always faithful…he’s just slow and mysterious.

    • Thanks, Chip. I don’t think I had a choice regarding faith and trust. It rather felt like being carried along, unceremoniously dropped on the ground, and then carried along again but in a new direction. I don’t think of myself as a very spiritual person actually, which is odd given my academic and professional background. But I do find that God seems to move into, out of, and around my life in ways that keep from going completely off the rails. And for that I’m grateful. I look forward to seeing more of your stuff on here.
