A few days ago, I had an appointment which I had to walk to.
Just stepping out I realised it was pouring rain (in my part of the world this is quite the norm!). Just then, I was gripped with fear.
Not fear of being run over by a truck or slipping and breaking my leg but fear of getting wet!
Over the next two minutes, I contemplated the option of postponing the appointment for the fear of getting wet!
You might ask “What are umbrellas made for?” Indeed using an umbrella would certainly solve the problem but I didn’t even think about it in that moment.
Suddenly, I remembered the great invention called umbrellas, proceeded to get one and was on my way.
As I walked on, I reminisced on what had just transpired and the implications of it.
~Fear cripples one from seeing the obvious solutions to problems.
~Fear can make us live below our potential.
~Fear can prevent us from reaching our goals.
~Little, inconsequential things can seem gargantuan if fear is involved…
But how can one avoid the shackles of fear?
The answer is faith! Yes, faith. Fear and faith cannot co-exist. Replace your fear with faith.
The Lion is the King of the jungle, not only because of it’s strength but also because it knows it is strong. Knowledge is a vital source of faith.
The Lion is brave and fearless and it knows its prey is weak and fearful. It thrives on this knowledge.
