Is Fear Standing in your Way?

Fear is always standing in the shadow.  Remaining out of control, we run rampantly into the darkness. Carrying the burdens we are not meant to carry, we run like the wind, afraid to trust, afraid to love.

What code do you live by? Is it in fear? Is it in obedience? Being sure of your right standing in God is a necessity. The great leaders of the Bible knew this. They lived by faith.

Quite a task I must say but to be true to your faith, stand firm. A true measure of a man is how well he stands in the face of adversity.

Living in fear is not where we want to be. Courage is determination with wisdom; it takes faith in action to be where we want to be. Repairing the holes in your life, letting go of the mistakes of the past, leads the journey towards hope.

Optimism and hope removes the fears in our hearts producing a magnificent splendor in which to live. Is it pure idealism to believe you can eradicate all the misery in your life?

Being a survivor requires long-term commitments, it means never giving up. Lessons in life introduce excellence over which we acquire wisdom. We may never achieve perfection, but we do have assurance.

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” – Hebrews 11:1

Chasing our dreams, the clock keeps ticking. Saving the life of your future, beholding the promises of God, grants us peace. In fear or flight, it’s a reason for survival.

Distressful situations mobilize a call to action. Leaving it all up to chance, grips the silence just before a new day. Spectacular events, improved relationships, and ultimate love trigger new possibilities.

Fear is a stumbling block; it prevents you from the realization of things to come. If we allow fear to grip us, we will remain paralyzed.

Trusting in God to let Him control the situation, we are free to move forward. Beyond our own comprehension, without hesitation we become free to love.

Grant peace, accept responsibility, sanctify affection and lack nothing. Do not fear.

  1. Another empowering post! Just what I needed, fear and pain visited me the last few days but thank God He is always near.

    And I say ohhh to that polka dots reflection in the spoon! I feel that that a message was sent — “Fear is not real, just a reflection. All you have to do is move away from it.”
