Oh my Gosh FEAR... Something we all have or had or will have. It will keep us in bondage for sure. I have been posting a lot on letting go on my facebook page because I keep talking with people who are in fear of the future and holding on to past hurts and events that won't allow them to move on. 
Here are some posts:

-----"People are just plain confused, on the fence, don't care either way, or whatever.... Make a decision, you cannot serve two masters. You cannot move forward if you holding on to the past. Usually if you don't make a decision life and time will make it for you and that aint always the best! 

Revelation 3:15-16 

“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth."

-----"Its time to let it go and move on with hope of better things to come. God has something so much better in store. 
Jer 29 
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you."

I was scrolling along on Facebook and came across a friend of mine by the name of Alaina's and she had a post about fear and I just had the urge to go read it. I was reading and was all these things came across my mind of all the things I let pass me by due to fear. 

This gentleman by the name of  Darren D. Moore, Ph.D., LMFT, is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, wrote an article about an event that he hosted, (click here for article) the title is "Speaking fear invites it into your life" and it is so true, what you speak begins to shift your world. I have written about this before, speaking life. But in the article there was an activity that they did which is awesome way to close one door and begin moving forward. 

They wrote a list of many of the things that they feared which held them back in those strongholds. They then read them aloud and think about how much time they were "operating out of fear". Then they went to the trash and apologized for being in fear and said, "I will fear, no Moore" and threw it away. I urge you to read the article in detail and take on that challenge to conquering fear. Of course be sure to pray first and ask God to give you the strength and courage you need. Remember that when we are weak God is strong (2 Cor 12:10) so it is alright to be weak. This is the perfect opportunity to give God the glory that He deserves! 

I personally had a fear of speaking in front of people and that included singing. I have a great voice but I have yet to break that fear completely. However, I am working it. I joined the praise and worship team and we each have our own mics and there is only 4 of us so it is like I cannot hide behind anybody. But I am sure I will be better if I keep working on getting OUT of my fear. 

Well I dare you to do that activity that is in the article and start seeing the changes. 

Peace and Blessings,

Some Scriptures to speak about Fear....

"The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD." Psalm 27:1-6

"What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me." Psalm 56:3-4

"Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it comes. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken." Proverbs 3:25-26

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7
I am an educator and facilitator for young girls that have the meanest spirits. My job is to go in and encourage, uplift and inspire these ladies to love their selves and aspire to do great things. I struggle for a reason because I KNOW how GOOD GOD is and I can't talk about religion or anything spiritual. I give it my best though but these girls hate their selves. They think they are ugly. They worry about what others think about them and I am not going to lie I worry about what others think about me as well but not to the degree where I get depressed or anxious.

I made up my mind a couple of years ago that GOD made me in His image and that everything He makes is GOOD. I made up in my mind that I was fearfully and wonderfully made. I made up in my mind that God has purposed me for great things and that I have HIM as my EVERYTHING.

This video is so touching and encouraging. It makes me wonder about all the issues I had or have and is it really an issue. I have the choice to choose how I feel at any moment or any day. I have the choice to choose how today will be different because of my attitude. My situation may be a bit messed up, my bills may be piling up, I may not have the dream job or the finances to do what I want but I have a choice make the best of any given moment.

Why give up on everything around you because your one dream is not happening. There is so much more out there and maybe your dream will come true.

I feel that God gives you what you need when you need it. Therefore you know God Promised to supply all of your needs according to his Riches and Glory (Phil 4:19) so DO NOT BE like the Thessalonians (2 Thessalonians 3:6-18) and stop working, waiting for the promises to come to your door.

Use this time and choose to do good for you, the people that love you, and others that have no idea who you are.

Watch the video and tell me what you think!

Choose LIFE!
"And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain on tables, that he may run that reads it" Hab. 2:2.

A group of women from my church got together one evening to create vision boards. These boards were to become the tangible and visual product of how we see our selves and what we want to work towards to in the future. I am a firm believer in having to see things over and over for it to become a part of me. For example, I need to write daily to do lists and if I do not, I am not productive. I am a visual learner and need to see where I am going. Just a couple weeks ago a principle was giving me different times for me to be there and I just did not understand. I was like I need you to write this down so I can see what I need to do.

I feel a lot of people have no direction because they do not have a vision of their selves in the future times. I work with young girls and they cannot fathom thinking about the future they can only see their right now situation. Thank God we all grow up!

Well I created my vision board which actually turned into a message board to inspire me. My theme for the year is "...Calleth those things which be not as though they were." Rom 4:17. This scripture kept replaying in my head especially during those times when my husband and I were upset with each other or he was not being what I needed to be at this moment. Times where I struggled with finances, seeing not much funds in there and bills piling up. Iam like GOD I know this is not how it is supposed to be and then I just start speaking things how I would like them to be. "God my bank account will always have money coming into it." God my husband and I will get along and we have a loving, exciting marriage." 99 Chevy Cav you will be a Range Rover"

"Yet we have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, I have believed, and therefore have I spoken. We too believe, and therefore we speak." 2 Corinthians 4: 13

I believe for better things in my life, therefore I speak. My message of faith I see everyday. I put it in my head, which gets into my heart, which becomes my behavior and then I am living life how I visioned it.

My message board is a reminder of whats to come, how to think- I think therefore I am. Why brew over the things that will make you sad and depressed you will stay in that state of mind and then only bad things will come your way.

I dare you to envision your life the way you want it, write it down, create a visual. Look at it every day and you can't just look at it you have to start walking the walk becoming your vision. Make it plain! I know God has so much in store for you and your life why not want something grand?
