Why are you fearful, O you of little faith? —Matthew 8:26
When we are afraid we do stupid things.. panic stricken in worrisome situations and as we filipinos say.. "kapit sa patalim" as a reaction to fear.. ( i dont know how to translate this properly).
... "the least we can do is pray to God. But our Lord has a right to expect that those who name His name have an underlying confidence in Him. God expects His children to be so confident in Him that in any crisis they are the ones who are reliable". oswald chambers
