Fears are like . . . (Conclusion) -From Coffee Hour @ Chickilt Power

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power and thanks so much for joining me today. I hope you’ve had a great Thanksgiving holiday weekend and are getting ready to embrace the upcoming Christmas season without all the things we tend to bring into it: stress, anxiety, debt . . . Grab your coffee and let’s finish up our cups of encouragement about fears.

So this Holy-Spirit-inspired revelation is a great motivation for ministry, and really has given me a huge helping of a powerfully gentle understanding to give to others as we share the reality of the necessity of the love of Christ with women who need to come face to face with their past if it’s crippling them in their present and robbing them of a brighter, more joyful future.

The sad truth is that we have bought into the lie from the enemy that it’s better not to deal with the past; the past is the past and needs to stay that way; that we don’t need to deal with it because if we even try to unpack a piece of it, it will hurt too much.

Well, as a recovering un-packer — 🙂 — I can tell you that all those statements I just wrote are LIES; absolute, profound, heart-wrenching lies. Yes, it is painful to sort through it and the more we have to unpack, the harder it is and probably more painful as well. But – uh-huh, BUT, having unpacked the majority of my stuff and being on the other side, I can tell you the pain was worth it, absolutely, positively worth it. Would I do it again if given the chance? You bet I would. The only thing I would change is I would have started a heck of a lot sooner so as to have been joyful longer!

So, when it comes to fears, which are just false expectations appearing real – He is there, ready, willing and able to see us through them.

Thanks so very much for allowing me to share this life-changing revelation with you. I hope it helps you the next time you encounter a false expectation appearing real!
