May I say to you, today, that fear, anxiety and stress has no place in your life, your heart, your mind, or your situation.
Anxiety has attacked … out of the blue … evading from the past and who I used to be. In my world this is not acceptable.
I don’t have the time … I don’t have the energy to spare on this disease!
More importantly I do not have to suffer this; society’s new “acceptance” of FEAR.
In Faith fear cannot stand … and in fear Faith cannot stand. There is nothing more clear if you ask me!
They say that God’s Word instructs not to FEAR 365 times … and I am on a quest to find as many of them as I can.
Fear is an instilled trait in many of us … some have silent, secret fears, while others suffer unexpectedly, and very visibly, for no apparent reason.
This world tells us we are afflicted … I say what the Word says!
Psalm 119: 89-96
89 Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. 90 Your faithfulness continues through all generations; you established the earth, and it endures. 91 Your laws endure to this day, for all things serve you. 92 If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction. 93 I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have preserved my life. 94 Save me, for I am yours; I have sought out your precepts. 95 The wicked are waiting to destroy me, but I will ponder your statutes. 96 To all perfection I see a limit, but your commands are boundless.
Life is stressful. I think I’ve tackled the subject of stress before, but it bears repeating, stress comes in many forms. I call them:
Today I deal with the bad … Saturday I battled the Ugly!
How does one battle the ugly and survive? I say survive because the anxiety junky truly feels as if they are dying. The heart races, uncontrollably, sweats break out and one feels as if they will simply shake until their very body shatters into little pieces of tinkling glass. Some suffer so severely that they come to a place where they do not recognize their own surroundings. Terror truly making them lost!
Been there, done that and do not intend to relapse into this abyss of mind bending disease!
I’ve taken the medications. I’ve had “professional” treatment ,that wanted me to visit a past that could not be remedied, and as I look back I think, what good does visiting my past have in my healing? I’ve come to know that my past, while making me the survivor that I am, cannot heal me for my future.
The only remedy that works, in my opinion, is described clearly in the Word of God. The Word defines fear as not from God. God says there is nothing in this world for us to fear; for He built us, for He is with us, for He will never forsake us, for He will rescue us.
Of course there is a part we have in our rescue! We must trust God. We must remain in His Word so that we KNOW the truth about how we were created, who we are in Christ and how we are expected to live our lives.
We are to live our lives in Faith! We are to believe God … not just “in” God … but in every word that proceeds from His mouth.
So my purpose is to write about or simply post God’s guidance, through His Word, in regard to the level of fears in our lives. Like I said there should be 365! One for each day of the year.
Think about that … God so loved us that He prepared to let us know daily that He has our backs! If this knowledge, alone, does not quell today’s stress and fear, I do not know what can!
Do you suffer fear. Does the stress in your life cause you to suffer undo worry? May I suggest that you open the Word of God to the back and find the scriptures that speak to this affliction. May I invite you to join me on this Healing Journey on ending fear in our lives by applying God to the wound.
Blessings LOVES. I HOPE in FAITH that you are blessed here.
