Let’s talk about the results of living in fear. I grew up in fear as a result of things I witnessed as a child. That fear controlled my life in many ways. Terrible things happened to me because I was afraid to speak up. I always needed to feel safe and secure. I never wanted to be left alone. Always trying to please others. Needing approval of others, not trusting my own judgement. You’re shy and afraid to speak up. Not wanting to stand out in a crowd. That same fear lead me into the arms of my abusive ex-husband. I am writing a book “Love Doesn’t Hurt”.
Today, because of the Love of Jesus I no longer carry that spirit of fear.
Did it take time to overcome fear? Yes, it had. It took me many years to not be afraid.
This year, is the first year I am becoming more comfortable in my own skin. I am not saying that you will not be uncomfortable at times or be afraid but when you do, pray and believe. All you have to do is think of the Love of Jesus and know that everything will be all right.
If I share my story or experience to help one person then that’s great. Please give it to God, we don’t have to live in fear. Your life is too valuable. Time is the one things that once it’s gone, it’s gone. Our purpose is to live each day as through it is our last day. Living in fear is such a waste of valuable time and energy. Be free and let go of hurt, anger, doubt, bitterness and fear. All these feelings have an affect on life is the same way.
Remember we are free. So wear your smile and believe in yourself.
