No Fear in Love

Fear is a debilitating disease.

My Dad always said, “You know what fear is Mandy?  It’s False Evidence Appearing Real.”

I’ll never forget the day he said that to me.  I had lost my confidence in myself and in my God.  My Dad reminded me that I was worried about things that may not ever happen, and was assuming they already had.

I don’t think there’s anyone that truly lives life without fear.  You can have it, but you can also not let it stop you from moving forward.

I heard recently that on the walls of Facebook there’s a sign that says, “What Would You do if You Weren’t Afraid?”

I posted it, here www.facebook.com/kloveamanda, and was amazed at your responses.  I was expecting things like a career change, or skydiving, but also got a lot about love.

Jacqueline said, “let love in”

Nellie:  “give love a chance.”

Robin:  Love with all I have and know. Believe in unconditional love between two within a relationship. Marry again without worrying about others' judgements or feelings. Believe that without a doubt, the marriage would last forever.

It says in the bible, ”Peace to men on whom his favor rests.”  If you know you have God’s favor, upon you, applied to everything you touch, what would you do?

Could you forgive?  Could you love others no matter what the cost?

That’s what He did.

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal

life. –John 3:16

You are Safe


If you’re looking for some more security today…

It’s not like the mall kind of security, but the kind of person in your life that makes you feels safe. You already have it.

I read this today, and thought it might encourage you too.  It’s from the Daily Word.

“You are protected at all times, safe and secure in the all-encompassing presence of God. Circumstances don’t have to cause you to be afraid.  God within you is a fortress of power and protection.”

If you can picture yourself running into this big tall stone tower, you’re escaping the oncoming attackers (stress, worry, failure).  You make it inside just in time, and a knight is there with you.  He shuts the giant door and locks the bolt, you breathe a sigh of relief, and you feel safe.

“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.” –Proverbs 18:10
