Fear be gone!

Jeremiah 1:8-9

Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD."
Then the LORD put out his hand and touched my mouth; and the LORD said to me, "Now I have put my words in your mouth.

I love this verse, it speaks volume, and in an instant, the water hose comes out and the fire is extinguished.

What does it mean to you to be afraid?

Do you give fear more credit than you need to?

What is life?

These were some inspirational words that were passed onto me, the gong of truth is resounding in my ear.

1) Life is a Martial Art. Pick your style. It's not a team sport. It may seem so, but when you enter the arena and take your fighting stance you are alone, just like at birth. And when the dance is done, you will leave the stage, alone! The "crowd", if you even have one, may cheer, cry, boo, applaud. They may be silent, they may stand up and walkout. They may be only one person or a stadium. There may be nobody. But, life is not a team sport, the crowd as any professional athlete must be tuned out, and when you're done, you're on your own. (CN)

2) "Work as if even God can't help you and when you're done, work some more. When you have nothing left, pray as if God is the only that CAN help you, when you're done pray some more. When you have nothing left, either way, settle down and enjoy the outcome, even if it's not what you expected, it's always what you deserve." (CN)

Questions to ask
Have you picked your own style?
Do you know how to pray an effective prayer?
