Faith and Jesus Christ are an unbreakable combination.
There will always be those who believe and those who do not. In some cases, the non-believers can be both intimidating and scary. These situations can be challenging to get through with your faith intact. Remember, Peter denies Jesus 3 times in one night out of fear, yet he goes on to be a great apostle for Jesus Christ and the Lord. He was a carrier of spoken and written wisdom of God, our risen Savior, and the Holy Spirit. He became a pillar of the church.
Like Peter, you can fail at challenges but still go on to do wonderful things with your faith. Yet minimizing failures is desirable. Consider when in a difficult situation, putting on the armor of Christ. Faith and Jesus Christ are an unbreakable combination. In the end, you will not fail with them. Take heart, feel the strength of our Father and his precious Son, and be strong. Love the Lord, praise him constantly, and ask for all you need. Believe.
Loving Jesus, I am sure it was with sorrow that you knew that Peter would deny you. Yet you also knew that his humanity was the issue, so you forgave him and helped him become an amazing man who helped convert an untold number to faith in God. It's genuinely amazing to consider. Jesus, I want to be strong in faith for you. I want to be like a bird, easily managing a touch of fear by taking flight only to land nearby to continue singing. Help my voice never be quieted, and strengthen it with your words of importance. Amen.
