What's your fear? Where in your life do you say, "I am afraid of ... ", yet you know it is a hang-up not a danger to your life or limb?
Would you like to be at a place where you can say, "I am not afraid" ... and mean it?
Fear can lead to anxiety that spawns a panic attack that triggers the fight or flight reaction. Fear, like pain, is designed to be our friend, not our foe. Fear keeps us from being in harm's way. Fear protects us from injury, peril, and even death. Fear provides for self-preservation. This is our good fear.
Fear can also be an occupying foe taking up unjust strongholds in our spirit, mind, and body. Bad fear debilitates our inherent motivation and destroys our confidence. The ripple effects beyond oneself can damage relationships, opportunities, jobs, finances, and more.
Fear is not to be necessarily avoided; it is, however, to be understood. Fear is a God-given guidepost to growth and healing. Facing fear, however, is not a solitary sport. Be wise and seek the help of a professional counselor or therapist.
Because of my son's interest in the Army Special Forces, I've been watching the Discovery TV show called Making the Cut. It highlights different branches of the military special forces training. Across the branches I've seen that certain aspects of the training are designed to train the soldiers to face fears and understand that even life threatening fears are typically greater in our minds than in reality. Training makes all the difference.
