Fear. We have all experienced it at some point in life, whether it was in the form of stage freight or a fear of heights. In all honesty, fear is a natural occurrence and can be a good/helpful phenomenon. For example; if you’re standing on the edge of a cliff, there is a reason you get chills down your spine and your heart begins to race. It’s a safe-guard.
fear can be a prison. When you CHOOSE to let fear control your life, then it is no longer a safe-guard. At that point, fear no longer protects you, it hinders you. Fear has a funny way of holding you back from reaching your God-given potential. Fear may be keeping you from applying for a new job or trying out for a sporting team. Fear can stop us from utilizing our talents, from reaching our goals, and ultimately from truly living these beautiful lives that we have been blessed with. Whatever the fear is that lives inside of you, GET RID OF IT.
2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” That verse says it all! God does not intend for us to live in a constant, crippling state of fearfulness! I know too many people (myself included) that, in the past, have allowed themselves to be crippled by fear. Go through this week with a fresh, new, BOLD outlook on life.It’s your life and you were designed to live it BIG!!!
