The Spirit Of Fear

FEAR. False Evidence Appearing Real, a saying that caught my attention when I first heard it. I began to question why do I fear? what is it that I fear? 🤔

Fear is something we formulate in our minds, things we convince ourselves are real and a great threat to our living being. THAT’S CRAZY RIGHT! Like why does our mind have to go and play us like that?😤Haha but sadly that is the truth about fear and the power of the mind. Isn’t it written, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7). This is why even inspirational/motivational speakers stress on the topic of personal development and creating a positive mindset (but this is a conversation for another day☺️).

Think about what you fear the most, I know everyone has many fears and we toss this word around a lot like a ball. However, have you ever really sat down and thought, what is my BIGGEST fear? and why? 

What are the actual thoughts that lead you to believe this is your greatest fear? If you come up with the answers please let me know.

Even myself I struggle to think why I fear what I fear😩. It has become a norm to accept what we fear as a way of life, like yea this is who I am, I fear this and that.

Well here is the funny bit, wait for it…

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear…” (2 Timothy 1:7).

Fear is a SPIRIT, WAAHHHAT🤯 I know but stay with me though. Fear is a spirit that takes a hold on our minds, puts a blanket over our eyes and makes us believe in a reality that is not the true reality that God has placed for us. This spirit likes to come in slowly and discretely, it will keep feeding you fear slowly and slowly that by the time you realise what’s going on it’s already taken hold. This is when it becomes very difficult to break.

Today I challenge you to look at your life? what are you fearing right now the most? I know even with the coronavirus there is a lot of alarm and fear and this is the perfect playing ground for the spirit, but I want you to sit down make a list of your top 3 fears, acknowledge them, understand them by asking the question at the beginning of this post.

And I want you to decide to make the necessary steps to break that fear.

During the coming weeks, we will be going on a journey to breaking fear. 💪🏾💪🏾

Stay blessed the most stylish way possible, being the you that God made you to be 😊✨

Happy Anniversay!

You can believe my surprise yesterday when I saw I had a notification from WordPress. I thought “gee it been a long while I wonder what it could be🤔”. It was a happy anniversary notification celebrating 7 years with WordPress.
I was beyond surprised 😱, 7 years when the Lord planted all this.
I started to reflect…what have I achieved in these years? why did I suddenly stop? and why have I been afraid to come back?

Fear is easy to form but hard to break. Fear of the unknown is what sometimes stops us from taking risks, starting something new or even being open to change. It came to my attention that fear has had me for a while now…

Have you ever stop doing something for so long and kept thinking I should get back to that, but began to fear that maybe you’re not as good as before or it won’t be the same as last time? because can relate. Fear and doubt complement each other, when fear creeps in we start to doubt our capabilities, the talents that God placed in us and we suppress them.

The funny thing is no matter how many times we hear this sometimes it takes certain moments in our lives for this to click, for us to realise what we are doing to ourselves. It’s very true what they say “our biggest enemy is ourselves”. I came to a realisation of this as the ‘verse of the day’ alert came on my phone with a verse which reminded me of how fear has managed to make me delay the things God has put in me to share.

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments,
For this is man’s all.” (Ecclesiastes 12:13)

We shouldn’t be wasting time fearing men, fearing what the world is going to think of us🙅🏾‍♀️, who should be fearing God and doing what He has called us to do, as each individual.
I don’t know who needs to hear this but it’s time you too break out of your fear shell. It’s time to stop ignoring the calling inside you, you are worthy and you are capable. For it is God who has installed the gifts in you.✨

I know it’s not an easy ride but you don’t have to go through it alone if you feel like this join me on this journey of breaking lose of fear and rediscovering one’s self. If you need to contact me feel free.

Well, stay blessed the most stylish way possible, being the you that God made you to be 😊
