Series on Fear

I started chronicling the various fears I have in different areas in my life, and countering that with the promises of God which I know to be true instead.

Its so much noise and clutter in the background - the fear. If you sit to look at your fears, you see that its all lies. I am speaking to mine: writing them down and reflecting on them. I see that they are just misconstructions to make me forget who I am in Him. And I'm praying about them, for God to re-ignite His love in me as he continually teaches me to die to my sins of my old-self everyday... Its hard, and painful. And yet, i've never felt any lighter :D

Here is an excerpt on one of my series.


"I am scared at my Jealousy because it makes me see my inadequacy. I don’t have anyone here. It makes me fear she will move on and I will be left hanging and without...

But then again, I’ve never been one to flow with the pack. I’ve never been one to measure according to everyone else’s coat. I’ve always been ‘different’ like Mummy said.

And the Lord my God has already said to me...
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
"So this soul of mine that He has already told to sit and be still... why are you still wavering? Why do you still grope around as one that has not yet been owned?"

Speak to that fear of yours, whatever it is. It is just a distraction to weigh you down from seeing that God is mightier than your circumstance.

  5. "...they are just misconstructions to make me forget who I am in Him." Yeah, that's what fear tries to achieve off us. May God help us.

    You know the funny thing... Fear twists the truth. Look at one of the things you feared... "I’ve never been one to measure according to everyone else’s coat. I’ve always been ‘different’ like Mummy said"

    That's the truth actually. You were never born or wired to measure according to everyone else's coat. You are unique, a royal priesthood, a holy nation... U were only born to measure according to His Coat! - His plan to give you a future and a hope as you have rightly ascertained. God is taking you higher my dear. You know it!

  6. @Blessing: Yup i know He def. will not fail. Yes, you should try it, its quite liberating :D Thanks for the encouragement.
    @Myne: You are welcome. You should try it sometime too :D Thanks for the encouragement
    @Lani: Thanks. Yeah, I'm scared of what the seed of Jealousy, when sprouted and full blown, can turn me into... and its def. nothing I would want to write home about. Its def. now what I want to rear its head into my relationships. Thanks for the encouragement.
    @LDP: You are right, it does twist the truth. And funny enough, what my Mum said to me/always says to me is what i say to tell myself that I ought to be courageous instead of letting my fears beat me down. Thanks for the encouragement.
