Chapter 3, Page 29, Book 19

How would you feel if you had no fear?
Feel like that.
How would you behave toward other people 
if you realized their powerlessness to hurt you?
Behave like that.

How would you react to so called misfortune
 if you saw it’s inability to bother you?
React like that.

How would you think toward yourself 
if you knew you were really all right?
Think like that.

Vernon Howard

March 29th- fear less, hope more

Fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.

Dale Carnegie

Fear is something we’ve all felt at one time or another, but because of my faith there is very little I fear these days.  My faith has taught me that our Father in heaven watches over us and cares for us.  For me, there is no fear where there is faith. 

Fear and faith do, however, have something in common.  They both ask us to believe something is going to happen that we cannot see.  The good news is that we get to choose, whether or not we will be fearful, or live in faith.  Faith says my best days are still out in front of me.  

Fear ends where faith begins.

Giorgio A. Dano

If you dwell on fear all day and you let it play again and again in your mind, then you give it a right to became. a reality.  But I have faith that everything will turn out just the way it’s supposed to be. I don’t give any space in my head or my heart for fear to grow.  

It’s when we take the first step into the unknown that we can truly live life to the fullest.  Our lives cannot be lived well if we are constantly surrounded by fear.  When confronted with unforeseen circumstances, we have two choices to make.  We can either allow ourselves be paralyzed by fear or we can keep the faith and trust that all will be well. 

 Remember God is in control.

Fear doesn’t have any special power unless you empower it by submitting to it.

Les Brown

Do not fear. Only believe

I always enjoy the quotes you use. Today i was captured by the first statements by Howard. But then I read your words that said it all:

"Fear and faith do, however, have something in common. They both ask us to believe something is going to happen that we cannot see. .................."

You know what we talked about yesterday in bible study - some people have fear and without God they hand;e it alone - but if you have God you are never alone in your fear.

What a wonderful post! Fear can be crippling, so letting go of it means true freedom. But you're right. It requires faith to successfully let it go. We have to let go... and let God.

This was a great one, Ma! I do live in a lot of fear when I should be living more by faith, even though I know better fear does like to get its hold on me. I'm going to copy this one out and keep it close by to let it sink in.

Some days it feels like your words are directed right to me. Like my mother, I've always been a rather fearful sort; free-floating anxiety, if you will. But that's no excuse, is it? Please keep this positivity going!
