I found this quote at the beginning of the year.
It actually came from the new planner I purchased and it sits on my computer stand.
“Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind- be led by the dreams in your heart.”
Too many times fear selfishly blocks the forward thinking that is critical to our progress and growth.
Fear just stunts, blinds, destroys and paralyzes us, to the point where our choices become limited and we are being shoved and compelled by something that goes against what we really want and need!
On the other hand, dreams are what lead us onward, upward and forward, helping us to forge ahead to higher ground.
And so people, we MUST keep our mind and heart on the same team and not be cluelessly dragged and bulldozed by worry and anxiety.
REALITY CHECK- I know that’s easier typed than done. I get it.
So…in all honesty…how do we stop fear from infecting our minds?
How do we keep fear from messing with our mindset and ramming us farther away from our PURPOSE and dreams?
One word: WORDs.
Prayers use words, quotes use words, scriptures use words, and people use words.
Pray, read, and connect with people.
Fear is no match to words… and especially The Word.
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
2 Timothy 1:7
