Power of Fear

Scared_Child_at_Nighttime

Perceived threat
past, present, future
freezes us, causes us
to run or turn and fight

Phobias, irrational fears,
or rational fear based on
true danger can fill us with
dread, anger, panic. It
can protect us by alerting
us to danger or harm us
by our inappropriate reaction
to it. Pay attention to
your fears. Decide the appropriate
action, then proceed with faith.
Do not be controlled by your
fears for surely
they will steal your
joy of life.

  1. Very true! Irrational fear can be a thief, but fear has its place. Without it, we’d all be run over by the nearest truck or killed by the consumption of something poisonous!
