Faith before fear

Monday, March 11, 2013

Today was a good day for me, I watched a Joyce Meyer video and was very blessed in hearing her message. She spoke on fear and how we should verbalize the faith we have in God's blessings on our life. I used to be a very fearful person when I was a child. I was so fearful that I could not go to the store to purchase anything or to place an order for a meal at a resturant. Boy, I did not need to overcome that fear cause I might not have had so much weight gain due to lack of being able to order my food. LOL. Fear has been a big root to a lot of my emotional eating. When I became fearful or worried I would eat to sooth my nerves. I allowed these fears to overrun my life and did not act on the faith I had in God. Well many years later I still had so many anxieties that overran my life including my career. I have gone thru lots of councelling and have had treatment for my severe anxieties and phobias. God has helped me alot. God led me to the proper dr that finally gave me an accurate diagnosis and treatment for all my problems. I am learning to act on my faith and walk through my fears. I am daily seeing improvement.

    Good message today! In the past, fear could stop me in my tracks. I missed many opportunities because I let fear control my thoughts and actions. I also realized "fear" was really living with "future thinking" instead of staying in "present."

All the "what ifs" would take me to "future thinking" and that fear would grow and create new fears. Today, I try to stay in "present thinking." When a fear pops into my head, I immediately ask GOD to please remove that fear. I acknowledge that giving control to fear is taking GOD out of the picture. I then ask GOD for the next right thought or action.

When I first started doing this, it was something I had to stop, pause and do. Now it as become second nature. FEAR...GOD remove...Next RIGHT thought or action. Works every time! emoticon

    great blog, such honesty and a great way to confront your angst. Joyce Meyers does make a great deal make sense in practical application, great to listen to and believe in the Lord- faith is believing in those things unseen, Fear often is the same thing... but not always if the fear has a foundation, take the time to confront those fearful events so they don't hinder you again.
Again, great courage in this blog.
