So the following post is the winner, Linda Davis’ creative writing. We keep throwing out challenges and they keep stepping up and raising the bar. If you want to experience what they are, join The Leaders Role today! We hope that you will get as much from this as we did!!!!!!
Fear is only a four letter word. This little word has been having a huge impact on peoples lives for as long as I can remember. It can and will affect your life and your business if you allow it.
The word F E A R means: False Evidence Appearing Real. Let’s examine this a little closer. False evidence says that fear isn’t even real. Written in the Word of God> John 8:32 says this:
“You shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall set you free.” I have clearly presented you with the Truth about the word fear. Now it is up to you, how you apply that Truth to your life.
Most of us, including myself, have had to deal with fear more times than we care to admit. Sometimes it is extremely difficult to overcome fear, as it wears many different names. Today I would like to talk with you about the “root” of fear; why we have it, and where it comes from. I stated in my first article that Organization starts in your thoughts. Well my friends; fear does the exact same thing.
Words are vitally important and they have a dual purpose in our lives. Words of Hope, Love and Praise will lift our spirits and fill us with Joy. On the other hand, critical, angry and hurting words
will immediately bring us down and plant a tiny little seed of doubt. Instead of ignoring it, we replay those words over and over in our mind. That tiny little seed then becomes a full grown harvest of fear. You now have what is called a “stronghold” OK! Are you going to overcome this stronghold or are you going to let it control you?
When we operate out of fear, negativity flows through us like a raging river. Another comparison would be to imagine yourself in quicksand. You’re sinking, deeper and deeper; then you begin
to panic in desperation. I believe I now have your full attention!
The opposite of fear is Faith. Make it your goal to build up your Faith on a daily basis. When you choose to walk in Faith, fear becomes paralyzed. No longer will you have those negative thoughts
and feelings. Faith fills you up to overflowing, with Hope and Joy. Favor fits you like a glove. I want to leave you with this thought. “God Hasn’t Given You A Spirit Of Fear! He Has Given You The Spirit Of Love, Power & A Sound Mind!!
