It’s FUN!

frozen by fearReally?

People try to explain it to me, viagra 100mg but I don’t get it.

Do you like scary things?

I love a good prank. Yes, it’s funny to see what people do when they get startled. OK! if you like that kinda thing, have at it.

But I don’t want to hang out with anything that even resembles fear.

This is where you see me climb onto my soap box.

My index finger isn’t pointing outward at you, if you look close, you’ll notice, it’s curved back toward me. Just this week I was asked by a wise friend, “Why?”

I stopped to ponder the pointed question. I squirmed. They reframed the same question, “Why not?”

My answer was painful…”Fear.” I answered honestly.

I could make excuses. It’s hard. It’s not popular to do what I feel God want’s me to do. I can package it with an attractive ribbon to make it sound spiritual, but it’s still fear.

And I’ve been blogging on peace recently. Boy, do I need to take a dose of my own medicine.

I hoped my friend had not noticed how deep I had plunged to retrieve that answer. I have a lot of faith…in some areas. But in that arena, it was as if fear had moved in to stay.

The trouble was…it was hidden.. until my friend asked that probing question.

Fear was hidden, like the snake under my porch.

I didn’t want a poisonous snake under my porch. Yet, it had lived there for some time.

Feeding.

Growing.

Reproducing.

Unnoticed.

 

I only discovered the snake when I cleaned away the boards and exposed the rattles first and then the snake. The snake wiggled to hide under a different board as I watched in horror.

This is where I would like to post a picture of my under-the-porch resident, but I was too busy running away to capture the moment with a picture.

Thank you! flickr.com I don’t like snakes.

Fear is like that.

Ignoring or piling stuff on fear doesn’t make it go away.

Ignoring fear tightens its grip.

I know!

Enough said.

Fear never leaves until you evict it.

Tweet this!

I know about that too.

Recognizing fear is an important step, but not the only step.

Another friend had candidly reprimanded me for my fear. I smiled and defended it like it was an ally, not the enemy it had become.

She smiled back at me, but she knew.

Fear is a thief!

Fear cripples.

Fear immobilizes.

Fear lies.

Fear can make you dance around with indecision until you miss an important date with opportunity.

Fear intimates and isolates.

Fear will locks you in the prison of regret and un-fulfillment. In its climate you will recoil, hoard your giftings and your resources, instead of investing them in a life that is well spent.

Fear questions sound something like this:

  • What if I make a mistake?
  • What if I fail?
  • What if this is the wrong decision?
  • What if I look stupid?
  • What will people think?

They are all questions that leave you frozen in place. But I want to ask you, what if you are right? What if you succeed? What if this choice IS a step in the right decision? What if this step makes you look really, really wise, instead of stupid?

You’ll never know until you try.

You’ll never know until you take a step out of your comfort zone and toward your dream.

Hold everything!

I’m not encouraging you to go ice fishing on a lake if you don’t know whether or not the thing is frozen solid enough to walk on. And I’m certainly not encouraging you to violate common sense or healthy fear that keeps you from doing stupid things. But I am encouraging you to stop, think and decide. “Is this a good fear or a bad fear”, should be your first consideration.

 

Good fear.

Fear of God.

Proverbs 14:27 NIV “The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, turning a man from the snares of death.”

Fear that prevents me from sinning.

Exodus 20:20 NIV “Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.”

Fear that keeps me safe.

Proverbs 14:16 NLT “The wise are cautious and avoid danger; fools plunge ahead with great confidence.”

 

Bad Fear

Frozen In Place

Fear of people.

Proverbs 29:25 NIV “Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.”

Any Fear that:

  • debilitates
  • torments
  • robs you of joy
  • makes you cower
  • accuses
  • intimidates
  • freezes you in place.

Frozen?

Maybe you’ve allowed fear to do to you what cold weather does to me–stop you from living life to the fullest.

Fear gives new meaning to the word frozen.

Would I be exaggerating to say that every little girl in America knows how to respond to “Frozen.”

Let it go. (Singing.) LET IT GO!

 

And the reason why you CAN let it go.

Isaiah 41:13 NIV “For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you”

I want to ask you “Do you feel like fear has moved in to stay?”

Get a grip on God’s hand…on God’s Word.

There’s not room in your hand for God’s hand and your fear. So let it go! (I’m singing again.) Let it go!

Dear Father, Help my friend to see their fear. To cut the head off of their fear by putting their trust in You and obeying your words. Thank you Father, that even fear has to bow to the name of Jesus.
