fear not..

My word for this year is LEARN.  

So it just makes sense to use this Year of Sundays to reflect on 52 of my most significant Life Lessons.   Some may seem more significant than others, but each one has changed how I live my life in powerful way.   I’d love to hear if and how any of these same lessons have surfaced in the classroom of Your Life.

lesson22The opposite of fear isn’t courage.  It’s faith.

To those of you reading this, who don’t consider yourself a spiritual or religious person, don’t worry.  I’m not getting ready to preach to you.  I’m simply going to say that when I need to move forward from stop.me.in.my.tracks.fear (as I often do), I remember that there IS something outside of me – that’s bigger than me and my fear.

It works for me.  It helps me breathe again.

How about you?

  1. Several years ago, I was asked what I really fear…..and my answer was (and still is) “Not knowing what to fear”. I have been afraid many times in my life, but for as long as I can remember I have never feared anything because of my faith. As strange as it sounds, I can not remember a time I have not believed in God and felt His spirit in my life.

  2. Thank you for reminding me, Lisa. I try really hard to just deal with what’s real and in front of me. I know God is with me all the time and I’ve been enough to know I’ll be ok. Maybe not happy or content, but ok. Blessings to you.

  3. Thanks for the inspiring words Lisa and Judi! I have been fearful many times and it is true that our Lord gives us the strength to get through it

    I love that my Mom was born in a little town in Pennsylvania called Fear Not!

  4. Lois, I LOVE the name of your mom’s hometown! I definitely need to visit there sometime!!! 🙂
