To take the words from the Edwin Starr song “WAR, what is it good for absolutely nothing..” I ask the same thing about F.E.A.R, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
F.E.A.R. is False Expectations Appearing Real and what are these good for? To limit us, to keep us captive in our own thought up results? We have fears about outcomes of conversations, calls discussions situations etc. when we cannot predict our next thought most of the time. Why do we do this to ourselves? Again, What is this good for, absolutely nothing.
When we were a hunting society, fear helped to keep us safe at times. Now it limits our abilities most of the time. If we are afraid of what a girl will say when we ask her on a date, we don’t get to experience what could be a great time out of the house with an enjoyable person. If we fear asking for a raise, we limit telling our supervisor about our abilities and how they help the organization. perhaps they haven’t connected your abilities to the accomplished tasks. If we fear conversations with the person we married, that leads to a very cold household and assumed situations etc.
After seeing the Secret Life of Walter Mitty, I believe we need to overcome the fears we have built up in our minds, to experience life in ways we haven’t even seen blife efore. God has a greater plan for us and we don’t need to be afraid of what life can give us in experiences and enjoyment. We just need to ride the ride and enjoy life, not the fears of life.
