Have you found yourself wanting for something but find fear holds you back? You find yourself living in the world of “What If”
- What if it hurts?
- What if I can’t do it?
- What if they don’t like me?
- What if they don’t approve?
- What if it doesn’t turn out right?
- What if _________ ? (you fill in the blank)
Do the thing you fear most and the death of fear is certain. ~Mark Twain. Action is our greatest weapon against fear. Left to smolder, fear grows upon itself, but in the face of action, fear is left in the dust.
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear…I John 4:18
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Nelson Mandela
