Fear is a very real state of mind. According to Merriam-Webster, fear is an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger. Often this feeling comes when we are about to embark upon some new task that we have never done before. The presence of fear before engaging in this task can often stop you in your tracks, so I am asking, “What is fear costing you?”
Fear is costing you your hopes, dreams, and desires. These things go unfulfilled because you are too afraid to begin them. In the absence of fear, what is that one thing that you would do?
Dare to dream, dare to live in the moment of your dreams becoming a reality and then pursue them.
Again I ask, what would you do in the absence of fear? Would you live your life to your fullest potential? Would you add value and joy to your life because you are living your life on your own terms? Or, would you live each day doing what you love, fulfilling your dreams and desires? This fear that is created in your mind materializes in all aspects of your lives. It cripples you and keeps you from accomplishing your goals, accepting challenges and venturing into new opportunities. Presumed fear is far worse than actuality.
In 2 Timothy 1:7, it states that “God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” You are powerful beyond measure, you can do the impossible. You can live every moment to the fullest. You must believe that you can do it in spite of fear, and do it!
At this moment, you can no longer live in fear. You must walk by faith believing that you can do what you desire to do. What has fear cost you? I think you have paid too much. It is the time that you start reaping some of what has been paid. Today, I challenge you to dream again, believe again and accomplish what you desire to do!
