Don’t be afraid of your fears

January 1, 1970

Regardless of your age, ethnicity, skill, or status in life, you will come face to face with your fears. There is something in every life that, when confronted, will stop your forward progress and cause you to reconsider your abilities or capabilities.

Researchers have determined that our fears are often exaggerated when compared to the real risk. In Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, we see the power of fear. Two men chained in cave while people behind them cast large shadows against the wall in front of them. Even though they could escape, their fear of the unknown source of the shadow holds then more hostage than their chains.

Our lives are similar to the life of the chained men. We stare at an object(s) in front of us and let the worst of our fears keep us from moving forward in life. Rather than face the fear, we wallow in darkness frozen. Hear is the truth – fear is an acronym that says that fear is nothing more than False Expectations that Appear Real. That’s it. Fears are just shadows that disappear the moment we shine light onto them. Whatever fear you are dealing with…don’t panic, turn and face it and throw light on it, and it will disappear. Try it and remember to always Be Strong Eph 6:10
