Fear is a given to us by Satan as a way to stop us from doing anything.

Sunday, May 23, 2010

What is it that I could do if I wasn't afraid and what am I afraid of? I am just thinking about it. This was quoted by a speaker in church today several times. I will have a part 2 later.

    Are you afraid of succeeding or "something" or is it really being afraid of what will happen when you succeed?

    Perhaps you should list the things you have learned, the things you have succeeded doing and what you are able to do. I think that I do much better when I recognize that I am able to do things and I can succeed at making and reaching small goals.

    Let your knight slay a few dragons and put some notches in his lance. Think about all the things you have learned to do. Think about all the healthy habits you have learned. You can succeed and you can recognize the things you are doing today to succeed. It is not an all or nothing proposition but line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there a little. You can build upon your success and make more success.

    I have thought about this all the time. I think it is really true. That is why I started training for my 1/2 marathons. At first I was afraid, and now that I am not allowing Satan to control my fear, I started to believe I could do it and I can.

    Such a powerful message.

    Oh my, we are so on the same wavelength. I spent a good part of yesterday thinking about the things I had to do and how I didn't want to do them because essentially I am afraid since I don't like myself and assume others don't too. And I kept remembering that was just a temptation of the devil. Looking forward to part 2. Have a great day my sparksister.

    I too once was told if we are not making progress or moving forward in any endeavour it is because some fear is holding me back. When I look at what it is I am afraid of and realize it is only a lie to stop my progress, because with God all things are possible, I can then move forward with greater momentum.

    I'm sure your speaker was speaking to those that are holding on to talents and challenges because of their fears, and therefore, was reminding us that our fears do come from Satan. This is not to be confused with fearing or respecting the Lord. I would be very surprised if the speaker was referring to everyone. I will be interested in reading your thoughts in part 2.

    Is it fear or just getting out of your comfort zone? Just keep in mind that there are many angels on earth (family & friends) who are more than willing to take your hand and safely guide you through the "fire".

    Maybe you're not afraid of anything but they pose this question so you second guess yourself. Just a thought!
