Fear is one of the most power emotions! Fear is an emotion that God did not instill in us but that we formulated on our own with the devils help. We allow this feeling to consume our lives and paralyze our actions. We all have experience fear at one point in time but most of us live in constant fear.It makes us less willing to trust, to communicate openly, and to take risks, that could forever change our lives. Because I was afraid of rejection I didn't approach the guy I was feeling and tell him that I found him attractive and I want to get to know him. I was afraid of losing my boyfriend so I lied about the situation in question. I was afraid of what people would think so I didn't do what was best for me. I was afraid so I did not apply to the school that best fits my needs.
The fear of rejection,hurt,and obstacles are the direct cause to our failures. Fear is an emotional response to threats and danger. It is a basic survival mechanism occurring in response to a specific stimulus, such as pain or the threat of pain. We fear what will be the result and don't think about the restrictions we on ourselves. What are you afraid of ? Can you overcome that fear? Have you asked God for his strength and courage? Do that today and see the difference!
Dear God I am afraid to let people get close and to express how I feel about them. I am afraid to keep loving and caring because I have been very hurt in the past. I am afraid that at times it is hard for me to forgive and forget. So at this moment God I need you to be present in my heart and for you to show me how to extinguish this fear and to live my life forthrightly and full of zeal. At one time i was afraid to say what i was afraid of. But the closer I get to you the less I stand in my own way! Amen
