Fear of Nothing

I think most of us over a certain age remember the famous Franklin D. Roosevelt quote, "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself." Well, let me tell you, I can most definitely relate to that quote. I lived in fear for many years of my life. Primarily, fear of the unknown more than anything. So for many years I didn't act on my goals or what lived in my heart or take chances. I wasted a lot of time being afraid of absolutely nothing. In fact sometimes I still deal with a little of that today. It's nowhere close to what it was before, but I have to be careful, because sometimes it can take me longer to step out and do things. Sometimes I'm still a little concerned about the negative that could happen. If I'm not careful that old 'what will they say?' may pop up or 'will I gain support or lose support?' As a result I'm sometimes initially hesitant of making bold steps, but I step out anyway. I step out despite that fear. Some of what I feel is a natural human emotion that we all deal with from time to time, it doesn't matter how accomplished we are. I admit that freely, yet I do step out and that's what God wants us to do. He wants us to help others with the things we've gone through. Each one of us can help somebody. I'm serious about helping people with their confidence and faith, because I know how much it held me back and I don't want that to happen with anybody else. A scripture that helps me is 2 Timothy 1:7, which says, "for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." Fear doesn't come from God. 

What I'm trying to convey in this blog post is that there's really nothing to fear as long as Christ lives in us. And when we're dealing with something that causes those emotions to come up, it's another reminder of how much we need God in our lives to help us. If any of you fears anything, consult with God and ask Him to help you in that area. It's time to stop letting fear overcome us and step out.

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small.

Speak things as if they were

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. Do you know you have the power to speak things into existence? Do you know you have the power to change your atmosphere? Oh yes, so speak life to your life and know that the Lord's Word never comes back void. It is always alive and active. It's never too late to start speaking over your life. In   Mark 11 :24 Jesus says, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours"  and   Proverbs 23 :7 says, "for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he."  Those verses are proof that when something lives in our heart, all we have to do is open our mouths and speak those things as if we already had them. It's amazing how much power we really have, but we throw it away, because of our lack of faith. I've done that for years and let me tell you, it's not happening anymore. I'm not giving no thing, no one, and no place another inch of m
