You can fool some people some of the time,but you can never fool yourself none of the time. You can tell yourself almost anything to excuse away fear. The bad news is,you will actually believe it for a while. The good news is,there will come a time when the excuse will not be strong enough or big enough to camouflage your fear. Eventually what you tell yourself will begin to sound so weak,so lame,so utterly ridiculous that you will have a hard time convincing yourself or anyone else that it is true. When that time comes and, it will come don't be defensive. Be willing to face the thing you fear.
As long as there's something to fear lurking in the back of your mind,you cannot,and will not have peace of mind. When you defend yourself for taking,or not taking a particular action,you are denying the foundation upon which peace is built. Truth!When however you wait,or prepare to the point of avoiding what you say you really want to do,when you know you are afraid but refuse to admit it,there is no way you can have peace of mind. In fact,if you insist on defending the excuse,you just might lose your mind.
Today you may have found yourself making excuses for not confronting the things you fear. You may have had a great excuse for remaining in a relationship,work environment or living arrangement that is not fulfilling. OR just because I only got one of this,or one of that. OR two of this,and none of that. How about just because I'm a freaking Amputeeeee! Today let's lay down all our excuses. And ask yourself,"What am I so damn afraid of that makes me stay in this place?" Make a list of the responses that come to mind. And we'll begen to see just how silly they are. But prayerfully offer the list to the Holy Spirit,asking it to show you the way out. And repeat the process as often as necessary until all our excuses vanish. It's a very unhealthy fear. I know,I've been there.

It does not serve you or the world for you to behave as if you are powerless. It is an insult to the creator, to the creator of your life,in whose image and likeness you were created,for you to bow or bend down to conditions and situations that are beneath you. It is arrogant of you to assume that you are incapable. YOU ARE CAPABLE! YOU HAVE GIFTS! You have the gift of intellect. You can think yourself into and out of any situation with you find yourself confronted. You have the ability to speak for yourself. You can defend yourself! Promote yourself! Encourage yourself! Teach yourself! Correct yourself! That is power. You have a heart. Through it you can experience love,grief,compassion,empathy,joy,peace and an entire realm of emotions that let you know that you are alive. While you are alive,you can create,destroy and rebuild something as insignificant as a Lego house or something as significant as the capitol city of a state. YOU CAN CREATE ANOTHER LIFE!!! Through that life you have the opportunity to share words of compassion,to express feelings of love,to know the joys of sharing and to experience the wonderment of seeing a life grow before your eyes. THAT IS POWERFUL! YOU ARE POWERFUL! Now why don't you try acting like it??? Today you may have believed that money is power,education is power, or the things that you can do makes you more or less powerful. Just for today,know that you really are powerful. Stand up in you own power! Embrace your power! Serve the world by bringing your power into your life. And you can start by being grateful for the power that has been given and are using free of charge! And not the power that you feel has been taken away.
