fear

What are you holding onto that’s holding you back from moving forward?

For me it’s fear.  Fear that I won’t be able to support myself.  Fear that I won’t find employment if necessary.  Fear that I will lose everything I have worked for all of these years.  Fear that I won’t have anyone to help me if necessary.  Fear that I will become homeless.  See how the fear grows bigger and bigger until it’s now a monumetous event that will happen sometime in the future!?!?

2 Timothy 1:7 says that “God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”  So where does this come from? 

And I DO know the answer to my question and nonetheless I struggle.  Oh I have LOTS of fears!  Sometimes I have to sit down with myself and say “Get a grip.  Make a plan.  Take action.  You will be ok!”

How do YOU deal with whatever it is that is holding you back from moving forward?
