My family went to church today and it was a great time with all the cousins! One of the lessons was about how fear can stop us from reaching our goals.. HOW SAD IS THAT?
We wrote down our fears on a piece of paper and shared some of them with the class. A common fear was being a disappointment and not being good enough. Again... HOW SAD IS THAT?
Here's the truth.. We are human beings and we are too hard on ourselves.
We get into this mindset that we have to reach perfection, and if we can't reach perfection.. it better be darn close. But, that is not the point in this life. We are here to be imperfect.. and then to learn, change, and grow.
Even after this life, we will still be progressing and becoming better.
I want to invite everyone to come unto Christ. He can make you whole again. It doesn't matter what your past mistakes are, you can be forgiven and healed. Repentance is real and vital! Be sincere.
THE TRICK TO HAVING LESS FEAR..... is to fill your heart and mind with faith. If you follow the commandments of God and know that you will be blessed, you can MAKE IT THROUGH. You have to literally trust God with all of your heart, might, mind, and strength. We have to move forward, take that leap of faith, and know that you are being taken care of.. know that God loves you infinitely and will not let you down.. as long as you keep your promises to Him! Heavenly Father is there for you. We call Him Father because He is our Father. Isn't that amazing? Pray to Him.. ask for strength and guidance. We need to put our confidence and trust in God. All things are possible with Him by our side.
So, if you're FULL OF FATH... you will FEAR LESS. Life is a bunch of ups and downs.. but stick close to Jesus Christ. When times get tough, think positively. Find joy in the journey.. and keep going. You can do this!
FAITH OVER FEAR.. always.
