Fear is the enemy of love and God is love. We live in a world that has an obsession with fear. We control one another through fear, all while speaking as if it is done for love. The deception hurts my soul. Fear is amazingly destructive, and is at the root of all violence. The current times seems to pray on fear of death. Death is being reported daily and fear has been the overwhelming result. Government leaders make decisions based on fear of how they will be perceived by some of their constituents or history. Not knowing that history is for the dead and to fear judgment is error. People in positions of granted authority should not try to combat fear by ordering additional fear to be allocated to the masses. Somehow we must turn our eyes away from this fear and find the calm knowing that love overcomes all. Love thy neighbor and thy persecutors. Many of us have responded to fear with anger, which is also rooted in fear. We fear that those gripped by fear will gain more control and attempt to instill fear into us, but this is error as well. All fear is error. We must therefore replace our fear with love and help all we can be removed from the tracks of fear. To fear anything is error for the one living God is here with us and God has provided a directive to fear not. Fear makes the brain flood our bodies with cortisol and channels blood away from our heart and primary organs to the arms and legs to outrun some present threat, much like a bear or lion. Remember the story if Daniel, he turned his back on the hungry lions, and most of us believe this was a demonstration of faith, but also as much could be said, that Daniel was simply following the directive to fear not. We cannot live in fear, because it will kill us. Faith is a calm knowing that thou art with us in the valley of the shadow of death. Remember the tree was named “knowledge of good and evil”. To apply good and evil is to create a basis for judgment, and we are not to judge one another for we are not the creator of one another. Today, turn your eyes away from fear. Stop reading health department updates, start asking yourself how can I turn my eyes away from fear, how can I embrace this day with love? Love will set you free.

Average person seeking more meaning in life. I was raised in a faith that unknowingly taught, seek your religion in all things, but as I grew up and started to better understand the relationship I have with the creator of this universe and the source of all conscienceless, I decided to seek the creator in all things. Not a man or a woman, not a right or a wrong, but the thing that hold all subatomic particles together, the energy that connects everything. This is the story of some of my revelations along the journey we call life. View more posts
