The chains of FEAR can be debilitating for us.  They can hold us in place and not allow us to move, forward or backward.  We simply get stuck.  These fears can take us to places we should never go.  Is is fear in a relationship, fear of death, ours or someone else’s?  Is if fear of losing a sale or losing a job?  Many of us play the “What if” game all too often.  Ironically, what we were afraid of never comes to pass.  I heard Zig Ziglar say many years ago that over 90% of the things we fear, never come to pass.

So how do we deal with the “FEARS” in our lives?  What is the root cause of the fears?  Could there be something in our past that works like a trigger and sets things off?  Maybe when you were younger you were raped or molested.  Does that set you up to be afraid of future relationships?  It should leave you guarded, but should it paralyze you?

What about the negative words someone declared over you? Does what someone said about you really make a difference?  What if it was a lie?  Are you holding onto the lie and allowing it to hold you back from accomplishing the things you want to achieve?

The first thing you need to do is recognize the incident, deal with the underlying pain, and move on. How do deal with it is the subject of many more blog posts in the future.  Stop letting someone else’s words steer your ship with their tongue.

‘but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. ‘ James 3:8-10 https://my.bible.com/bible/59/JAS.3.8-10

Words mean things.  People can either sow good or evil with their words.  Choose to receive only their good words of encouragement.  Don’t allow negative words come into your life, all they will do is create fear and hold you back.

Conquer your fears and you will accomplish more than you can imagine.  Is fear your baggage?
