Fear is a Liar

False Evidence Appearing Real

Have you ever been afraid of something that didn't even exist? Have you ever spent time being fearful of something that, later on, you found wasn't anything to be afraid of in the first place?
If you haven't done so, read the last blog "sets the stage" for this week's series.
Now, using the example I used about "the boogie man" from when we were kids, you will understand how "fear" can really create a "realistic" belief. Yet, it is only imagination appearing real.
Fear often brings about the "What If" syndrome, but only on the negative side. FEAR causes us to ask, "What if it doesn't work?" "What if I get turned down? "What if I get rejected?" "What if it doesn't turn out the way I want?" "What if I fail?"
FAITH (belief), on the other hand, asks these same questions with a positive view. FAITH causes us to ask, "What if it DOES work?" "What if I they say 'yes'?" "What if I get accepted?" "What if it DOES turn out the way I want?" "What if I succeed?"
Fueled by negativity, our minds tend to look at the down side of events and possibilities. Fear causes us to worry about and focus on results that, often, never even happen.
If we could just understand and KNOW that FEAR IS A LIAR then, perhaps, we might move forward with more confidence.
Again, even if you DO take two steps forward and one step back, you are still AHEAD of where you were when you started!
Do not allow fear - FALSE FEAR - keep you from living and experiencing all that life has to offer. We were not made to be afraid, friend, we were made to CONQUER fear and move forward!
So, yes, FACE YOUR FEAR and you may find that there was not anything to fear in the first place!
Life was meant to be LIVED, not FEARED so, friend, now is the time to get going.
