God Blessed Morning Family!
Fear not for what we fear the most is not the issue but fear itself. In our minds we create a scenario and a possible outcome which is something we fear would happen and then we allow something that has not happened but is based on a belief that it will happen to cause us to worry if it would ever occuring. Doesn't this sound a bit frantic and dysfunctional? Why would we allow a thought to create so much strife within us that we become obsessed with the possibility of an outcome that has not occurred. When we fear heights it is not the height which bothers us it is the possibility of falling. When we fear dogs it is not the dog but the possibility of its bite that brings about thoughts of fear. The thought of failure of a task immoblizes us to do nothing and remain stagnant in pursuing our dreams. To allow fear to direct our Lives is to lack Faith in God, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." It is okay to use fear to motivate ourselves to move forward and push beyond what we fear but it is not okay to allow it to control our journey for we are destined for greatness and fear has no place in our pathway for if something is to occur in our Lives it is ordained for everything happens for a reason in which He has defined to be a part of our physical and Spiritual journey. Fear not for there is no room in the house of my Father for fear, "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." Isaiah 41:10. Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah.
