"Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves." Cheryl Strayed.
It's easy to be afraid - to think the worst...to fear what's going to happen in the future, or even worry about simple day to day things.
And sometimes, I'm afraid to be true to myself....to stand up for what I believe when others around me don't want me to.
But I always remember what someone once told me about fear.
Fear is the opposite of faith. The two are like a positive and negative magnet. They always repel each other. It's impossible to bring the two together.
Faith and fear work the same. It's impossible to move in fear and faith at the same time.
Fear is all about thinking - what if so and so happens. What if I can't do it. What if I fail. What if.....
Faith is all about trusting - I'm okay, everything will work out for my highest good. And for me I know He's got my back. He has a plan, and a purpose and has promised to work out all details for my highest good. Even the bad stuff will eventually turn out amazing.
Yep I choose to kick fear to the curb and walk in faith.
Happy Thursday, Guys.
