It seems like a lifetime ago, but it been less than a month since that I read an article about travellers cancelling their trips and vacation plans because of fear over COVID-19.

The gist of the article was that travellers were discovering the limitations of their travel insurance.  In most cases, the discovery wasn’t a pleasant one.

What one industry spokesman said about travel insurance was that fear was never covered.  Actually it is, but you have to buy CFAR (Cancel for any reason) insurance, and that is really pricey.

Those who cancelled their trips back in March probably were wise.

Many people today are living in fear.  Fear for their jobs, fear for their health, and fear for their families.  And some of those fears are grounded and others are groundless.

It’s easy to trot out scriptures like 2 Timothy 1:7, and while we aren’t to live in a spirit of fear, fear itself isn’t always a bad thing.  It keeps us from doing all kinds of stupid things. Fear just shouldn’t control our emotions and our minds.

Maybe a better suggestion for these times is David’s prayer found in Psalm 66:3 But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you.

In our fear, let’s remember to put our trust in God.

Have a great week and remember: To see what is possible, you’ll have to attempt the impossible.
