No Fear!

No Fear!
Do you remember that slogan? No fear. No doubts, no need to please, no guilt, or shame or worry about what tomorrow might bring.

I can’t say that I’m there today. This H1N1 has really taken a lot out of me. But most days, this is what it means for me to live in the abundance of Jesus’ love. It’s a wonderful thing to not take one’s cues from the majority. It’s a wonderful day to recognise each sunrise as a gift. It’s wonderful to be able to know that “I can do anything,” and “All things are possible,” and that these things become true, in hindsight for those whose lives are lost in Creator God. It’s a wonderful life to not fear material loss, to know that our well-being is not equated to what we own. Security and contentment come from God. We can hold our possessions lightly

Only one thing is needed to lead a life of no fear. Let go. We must let go in order to receive. To be born from above is not something that is grasped, or achieved, it’s received.

No fear.

That is too bad about H1N1.... We must all thank the scientists who work so hard to bring us vaccines and medicine to cure these terrible illnesses.

Only if they bow down to "scientism"...

Right... I guess if a person were to oppose the values of "scientism", then they would refuse to use medicine.

Those who have devolved into “scientism,” are unable to comprehend any truth or see anything as valuable unless it’s understood from a scientific perspective. They also believe that there are no limits to what science can discover. In their minds, ‘there is no truth but scientific truth.’

Or, we could just default all things that we do not readily comprehend into "the will of God". Of course, it would always be that simple.
