Perfect love casts out fear

Insecurities, anxieties about our tomorrows, disturbing thoughts about our yesterdays and worries are all various forms of fear. They make us timid and tear away our confidence and self-esteem.

Some of us have stage fright and cannot perform infront of an audience while some of us suffer from the fear of animals, especially insects. Some of us are scared of being lonely or feeling isolated while some of us are scared of being too attached to people for fearing of losing them. Some of us have the fear of being separated from our belongings or from people we hold dear to. Some of us are scared of encountering people who put us down by highlighting our weaknesses while some of us are scared of the discrimination caused to us by our supervisors. All of us have some kind of fear or another.

I’m sure many of us have come across the term- “ Face your fears“. What does this actually mean?

Yes, it means getting ourselves to come to terms with all the things that intimidate us. But….. is it really as easy as it sounds? More often than not, our answer to this is a No! Its definitely not easy giving up our fears.

Well, this is actually a step-by-step process, to be precise.

We need to first determine all the things that don’t allow us to live freely. Like really examine ourselves and see if we have fears and uncertainties (like any of the ones I mentioned above or even any other kind)

Let me break this down for you. We have been created to live our lives to the fullest! A life without sadness, only joy! And this joy comes with the truth- a truth that sets us free. A truth that makes us know that we are so loved by our maker that we need not fear anything anymore, because he loves us soo much!

But then, some occurences tend to really stop us from reaching our full potential and from enjoying an abundance of life in the real sense of the term.

God’s perfect love casts away all our fears

– 1 Jn4:18

So, once we have determined all our fears, this automatically paves way to the second step-> which means we have now accepted that we have these certain fears inside us that don’t let us grow and allow us to discover the beautiful things that are in store for us, the plans of prosperity that God has for us.

Make room for FAITH and FEAR will fee…

-Levi Almeida

The third and final step is to take that leap in FAITH and remind ourselves that the GOD who created us is perfect. And therefore, his love for us, is perfect. No matter what you go through, he is very much with you. Look up at the skies, he’s bigger and higher than them. You could be drowning in the deepest oceans but his love will stretch out his hand and rescue you. That is the love of our God. SO, why then do we fear? Let us walk by faith and not get intimidated by certain facts or things we see around us. Let us say to our God that we place our trust in him and know that he is walking with us and will see us through every situation, because he is our God. We are here in this world, because he willed us into being.

Hence, why fear??!!

Smile and say “Because I know my God, I am strong and courageous!I have the faith it takes”

And you will then see how things work out for you.

You will conquer mountains and know that you can do all things through him who strengthens you.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
