Fear is a beast! OMG, what would the world be like without it? As a noun fear means, “a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid.”
When we think of fear most of us think of something scary, (i.e. a movie, murders, accidents, etc…) But the fear I’m talking about is this part of the definition, “whether the threat is real or imagined.” We’ve talked about anxiety and how the mind (if not controlled) can trick you… the fear I’m talking about today are those crippling voices in our heads that say, “I can’t”.
It is no secret that my life has taken a turn BY a directional change that I would have never assumed (Youtube)… I say by a turn, because motivating and speaking to people about health was always in the plans. So in the midst of this great and marvelous change (change because it’s going faster then I ever thought it would), fear creeps up every now-and-again speaking words of doubt and separation, causing nervousness, restlessness, and sometimes just being uncomfortable. What I have found out about this beast is that I’m so much stronger then I once thought. Dr. Shelia says this in her motivational cd, “When we’re about to step into our greatness, fear shows up… but we must face our fears and live from the potential within.” (paraphrase)
Therefore I say this to myself and all of us who are on the verge of a victorious reunion with our destiny, “Stare that beast in the face and slay it with your strength.” God has not and will not put more on us then we can bear… but the flip side to that is He’s blowing our minds by proving to us that we can bear so much more then we thought, right?! WOW!
It’s a holiday… but it’s still Monday for most of us :0) Let’s make this week BIG!
