Fear wants to stop our stories.
He is something that ultimately will end in doom, hoping to take humanity with him.
He is ultimately powerless.
But, regardless of how desperate humanity is to be a champion, the darkness wins out far too often.
It shouldn’t be.
People need faith, hope and light.
Real light . . .eternal.
The Bible says,” We are to be that light in a dark place, not hidden under anything.”
I for one want to live brilliantly today.
What voice, what face, what thought stands in the way? Fear has so many faces.
How do I go from fear to freedom?
From fear to boldness?
Am I willing to be that naked, that authentic, that exposed?
Will you share your brokenness?
I am so tired.
I’m more tired of being beaten down by fear than anything else.
I’m tired of feeling alone, forever alone in this unusual journey.
Unfolding and revealing my story of the Truth.
Wondering who will stand with me.
I know I can’t fight fear by myself.
It will take THE TRUTH. The Truth we forget too easily. The Truth that sets you and me free.
This Truth, “I did not give you a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.”
That’s the voice, I want to listen to-I must listen to.
I can’t be afraid of coming into the Light anymore.
How can we be brilliant unless we are living in His Light?
How can I be a brilliant leader if I will not take the first step?
Much Love, Jenene
