I faced a big FEAR.
I finally went to the dentist.
Oh the FEAR is the FEAR of waiting for that
electric shock that goes through your whole body
when all it takes is touching that little spot
on one of your teeth that you had no idea had such power
to control you~
even though it hasn't happened
even though it may not happened~
but just because it happened before
then there is room for FEAR to move in
so that you just avoid doing the thing that you need to do
even if it means that all your teeth may fall out.
Isn't it crazy how our mind works?
Why would a dentist purposely want to hurt you?
Could it be because when you were a child and he promised that he wasn't going
to pull your tooth...
and then he did!!!
is all around us.
FEAR is based on a past happening
that guarantees that "it" is going to happen again.
Therefore you wait for "it"
by controlling "it"
But what power does FEAR really have?
FEAR is a big stop sign that makes you paralyzed in WAIT.
What is your biggest FEAR?
~the loss of a loved one
~speaking the truth
~facing the day
~doing the next thing.
you fill in the blank~
But what if FEAR is FEAR of yourself~
feeling what you don't want to feel.
But you can't stop it
FACE the FACE of FEAR
which is you.
But it is possible when you FACE the FEAR with the FACE of THE ONE who
takes away FEAR
HIS LOVE is so PERFECT
that is greater than even your greatest FEAR.
Oh easier said than done
when the arrow of FEAR comes flying towards you,
so easy when you see FEAR just an intruder that strives to make you believe
that what are FEARING will happen.
But what if it does?
Where is GOD?
the king of what can go wrong did go wrong~
"What I feared has come upon me;
what I dreaded has happened to me.
I have no peace, no quietness;
I have no rest, but only turmoil" (Job 3:25-26)
Where was GOD?
Oh right there with him.
Right there bringing GLORY TO HIS NAME
even through the most FEARFUL circumstances.
Oh Job acknowledging that
GOD IS IN CONTROL~
“I know that YOU can do all things;
no purpose of yours can be thwarted" (Job 42:2)
Oh FEAR you are no longer an option
GOD IS BIGGER
takes us beyond any FEAR that appears to be
BIGGER & BETTER than GOD
all things through HIS SON JESUS.
The power of FEAR removed
as PERFECT LOVE DRIVES OUT FEAR (I John 4:18)
In Forever there will be no FEAR
FEAR will not be an option
JESUS becomes the ONLY OPTION.
Therefore, as I go and get a crown on my cracked tooth today
I will not FEAR
FEAR IS NO LONGER AN OPTION
