Fear

How could a word so small control the majority for one’s life?

As children, we fear our parent’s wrath, loss of their love, and the ‘boogie’ man.
As teenagers, we fear lack of popularity, not ‘making the grade’, and making incorrect decisions that affect our future.

As adults, we fear financial instability, substandard parenting skills, and lack of a significant other.

Why should we fear these things? They are unknowns.
What are we lacking in our lives that allow us to succumb to these emotions?
How do we conquer these emotions?

God

The love of God erases the doubts of the unknown. Within faith, nothing should be feared.

    Nice post. I don't experience fear as much as I experience anxiety. However, one of my favorite scriptures has become "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34

  6. @the girl: If that is how you "experience" fear of mice, your anxiety over there will give you a heart attack. At least you did not scream. lol

    @rich: Thanks, I am a newbie. I will be visiting your real estate often.
