Day 12: Good Bye Fear


 FEAR~

it grabs you when you least expect it.

FEAR~

it stops you in your tracks.

FEAR is a monster~

     the monster that blocks the door to JOY.

         The monster the stands with its whole body,     

                smashed against the door,

         staring you in the face,

 giving you the message that there is

no way that you are touching that doorknob,

and

      there is no way that you would even think

 that there is a way out.

Isn’t that what FEAR does?

     Paralyzes you in the moment.

FEAR is a death grip around your heart

FEAR is always preparing for disaster.

 FEAR

comes in ALL shapes and sizes

labeled as PHOBIAS ~      

*PhiloPHOBIA:  FEAR of LOVE

*CheroPHOBIA: FEAR of HAPPINESS

*AutoPHOBIA: FEAR of ONESELF.

These all sound a wee bit silly,

but oh they are real

as these FEARS have been and sometimes

raise their ugly heads in my life.

For why would you have a FEAR of LOVE?

Maybe because you were hurt by LOVE.

Why would you have a FEAR of HAPPINESS?

Maybe because when you were truly HAPPY,

the other shoe dropped. For why would you have a FEAR of YOURSELF?

Maybe because you, at times, are your own worst enemy.

And the FEAR of all FEARS,

PHOBOPHOBIA~

THE FEAR OF FEAR.

This is FEAR at its best,

as it brings you to the root of

FEAR~

AtheoPHOBIA~

THE FEAR OF NOT HAVING GOD IN ONE'S LIFE!

Oh how I have my moments

when I rest

ANXIOUSLY IN ATHEOPHOBIA

when

I BELIEVE that GOD

 may leave me or forsake me when

 I will need HIM the most.

Yikes! I did just write that

as I am

FACING my biggest FEAR.

A life without GOD.

Camp out there for a moment.

What is your life WITHOUT GOD?

A LIFE WITHOUT JESUS!

What is your life WITHOUT JESUS?

A LIFE WITHOUT LIFE.

And yes,

I should FEAR

and you should FEAR

if GOD is not in your life.

FOR when GOD says,

 “I will never [under any circumstances]

desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support,

nor will I in any degree leave you helpless],

 nor will I forsake or let you down or relax

My hold on you [assuredly not]!” (Hebrews 13:5)

there is no such thing as

ATHEOPHOBIA.

For

when GOD makes a PROMISE

HE keeps HIS PROMISE

for JESUS took away ALL FEARS~

 "I give them eternal life,

and they will never perish,

 and no one will snatch them out of MY hand" (John 10:28).

Case Closed.

Say GOOD BYE

to

The FEAR of LOVE~

"For GOD gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love

 and self-control" (John 3:16),

And GOOD BYE to

The FEAR of HAPPINESS~

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is GOD'S will for you in CHRIST JESUS"

 (1 THESSALONIANS 5:16-18),

And GOOD BYE to

The FEAR of ONESELF~

"Therefore if anyone is

IN CHRIST t[that is, grafted in, joined to HIM by faith in HIM as SAVIOR],

he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the HOLY SPIRIT; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away.

Behold, new things have come

 [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]"  

(2 Corinthians 5:17).

Today is the day

to

say

GOOD BYE

to

your

FEAR of

_______________

by

FASTING from FEAR.

Every time

FEAR strives to raise its ugly head,

just say

NO

by

saying

YES

to

the

LOVE OF GOD

by

absorbing

one or two or three or more

of

HIS PROMISES

that WILL

 slam the door on

FEAR

because

"FEAR you will never be welcome here"
