Per Fidem Intrepidus means "Fearless Through Faith". My courage isn't my own, it comes from the Holy Spirit, it's my faith in God and my personal savior Christ Jesus that calms my fears and allows me to move forward in this fallen world. Personally I'm afraid of a lot of stuff, but having the faith that Jesus adopted me as his little, sin filled, brother keeps me going.

WWUTT Wednesday - Return Traffic

Once upon a time our computers actually used a wire (shocking as it may seem) to speak to another computer. When your computer tried to communicate with another computer the sound it made was akin to someone throwing a tomcat into a room full of ducks. 

This was the modem, which is short for Modulator - Demodulator. two devices built into one box. The demodulator converts signal to something your computer understands, the modulator converts your computers signal to something other computers understand. In the outside world, the mod and the demod may not be in the same device, or even on the same network, but they work together to provide two way communication between device A and device B. When device A talks to device B it sends the info out of the modulator, B replies which A receives with its demodulator. We call this reply "Return Traffic"

We have two way communication with God too. He has many devices which He can use to speak to us, primary being His word; the bible. Return traffic from us is prayer, our modulator is the Holy Spirit;
26 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; 27 and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. (Romans 8:26-27)
