December 3.2013 – Fear by Barrie Davenport

Hear today’s audio of the warm and fuzzy here!

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself–nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.

Fear, which was once an appropriate reaction to real and present danger, is now the reaction to any imagined negative outcome. Fear is mostly a product of our imaginations, almost always without any true basis in reality. We fear failure. We fear success. We fear the future. We fear the past. We fear possible scenarios with only a shred of evidence to lead us there. The more we think about what we fear, the more we feed the fear. Then fear begins to control us, limit us, and ultimately overtake us.

The Fix:

Examine your fears under a magnifying glass. Break them down and study all of the parts. How much truth is there really in each fearful thing? What are the odds that the fearful thing will come to pass? Leave no fear un-probed, until you become bored with fear. Become practiced at seeing fear as a weak and capricious companion, only useful when you are dealing with reality.

“The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”NELSON MANDELA,
Written by Barrie Davenport

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
