Monday Motivation: Hello Fear….

Hey guys!

Forgive my lack of blogging this week. All my ECE, RECE , DECE and teacher friends can attest to the fact that preparing for the first week of school is just as taxing as the actual first day! So forgive me, I have been wrapped up in that this week πŸ™‚ .

This past Friday, I had a wedding to attend and I paid an early morning visit to my hairdresser. She always has great music playing and since I always take the earliest appointment ( 6:30 am!) I love that I can hear awesome music to help me wake up while I get dolled up!! This particular visit , on her playlist were songs from an album I love, Kirk Franklin’s ” Hello Fear”Β .Β I had completely forgotten all about it! The song also entitled,Β “Hello Fear” spoke to me that day.

According to dictionary.com, fear is described asΒ an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat…

How many times have you let fear take control of your lives? How many times have you let fear stop you from accomplishing what you want to do? I know I have!Β .Too often we let our own insecurities hinder what God has in store for us. When things don’t go our way, we automatically shut down and begin to doubt God’s plan and the path He has set before us.

There are many people in this world that suffer from anxiety, and I do think everybody struggles with a bout of anxiety from time to time. Some people use vices like drugs and alcohol to cope with their anxiety. I choose to rely on two particular scriptures to get me through. The first being Philippians 4:6 which reads:

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Prayer for me is the key resolution to anxiety. Nothing gives me more peace than having a conversation with God and leaving all my worries and cares at His feet.

The next scripture is definitely one of my favorite scripture verses. 2 Timothy 1:7 reads:

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

So I encourage someone out there today to not let fear take control of your life! Instead, say goodbye to fear, doubt, depression, loneliness and any other things that may stop us from LIVING. Let’s replace fear with a reminder of God’s grace! No matter what, He will see you through! GOODBYE FEAR! We will no longer be prisoners to you!

Check out the lyrics and the song down below and have a wonderful Labour (labor for my American readers :p) Day!

Hello Fear
Before you sit down there’s something I need to explain
Since you’re here
I think I should tell you since we last talked things have changed
See I’m tired of being broken-hearted
So I made a list and you’re on it
All my hopes and my dreams You took from me
I want those back before you leave

Hello Fear
I knew I would see you, You have a hard time letting go
See these tears,Take a good look cuz, soon they wont fall anymore
God’s healing my hurful places
That seat that was yours now is taken
I’m no longer afraid,See I’m better this way
And one more thing before you leave

[Chorus]
Never again will I love you
My heart it refuses to be your home
No longer your prisoner
Today I remember
Apart from you is where I belong

And never again will I trust you
I’m tired of fighting it’s been way too long
No longer your prisoner
Today I remember
Who I was and now it’s gone
They’re gone
Hello Fear
Da da da da da, da da da da da

Farewell Goodbye So long [3X]

Hello Grace
It feels like forever, I thought my chance with you was gone
See your face, it reminds me of mercy
And please let me say I was wrong
Never knew your touch was endless
How you never run dry of forgiveness
Didn’t know how bad it was, was afraid just because
Sorry fear, grace took your place

[Chorus]

Farewell Goodbye So long [8X]

Hello Fear
Before you sit down there’s something I need to explain
