My mom used to say fear is an acronym. It stands for False Evidence Appearing Real... F.E.A.R. She always challenged me to replace my fear with faith.
This is what she taught me... Have Faith in...
Faith in God and Jesus Christ
Faith in myself
Faith in a plan that is bigger than just me
Faith in humanity
Faith in my parents
Faith in my siblings
Faith in my spouse
Faith in my children
Faith in my extended family
It isn't easy to let go of what we KNOW and trust in what we believe... But I have found great comfort in not abandoning my heart and mind to the false evidence that always tries to encircle and drag me down. I hear those voices of doubt and criticism internally and externally. However, I won't let them win. We each decide what we will think and believe. A bird named doubt might come in my head, but I don't have to let the bird build a nest. I have decided that I can't do everything but I can do something...maybe a lot of little somethings. I can change lives in my little corner of the universe. I am embracing my strengths. I will be the change I wish to see in the world!
@ L.B.C...Two men can do ANYTHING...when one of them is God! I believe in you my friend!
To all of you out there being held back by fear...be fearless...you can do it! I know you can!
Changing the world...ONE letter at a time!
