Whom shall I fear, Faith Blog Hop

Welcome to another blessed Faith Blog Hop.  This month we are focusing on the theme of Fear and we pray you find hope in the midst of any fear you may be experiencing.  Join us as we showcase the talent the Lord has given us through projects that reflect what we know about God.  The hop begins over at www.mypapertreehouse.blogspot.com, so if you just happened to find this blog, make sure to go on over there first and read the whole Faith Hop information and the wonderful words Nana is writing over there.

 If you came from Tammy's blog, you are in the right place!  Know that we are praying for you! 

When I think about fear, then I think of the past (5) years when I feared the feeling of fainting. The fear of losing control of my life. The feeling to not know what happens to me, when I get to the point I faint.
 In my life I haven't fainted a lot. The ones I can remember are like 4 times or so. But this fear comes from my accident with the subway, about 5 years ago. That was in the time that  I didn't took care of my inner self. Always rushing, and having the idea that I had to be some kind of SuperWoman. Never accepting or asking for help. Always felt like I had to do everything on my own. Thinking about that now, I really think that's just so stupid. But in that time I didn't know how to think or act different. It was a way of life I had for so many years. 

So when I had that accident, after a while,  I developped anxiety attacks. It was coming to the point that I just went to work, got home and hardly did anything else outside my house. In that time I didn't own a car, and I had the fear for public transport, because of that accident. Fortunately I got another job, which I really felt like being Godsend. So I didn't have to travel public transport and could go on my bicycle to work.
So the fear of fainting was just a mental thing, nothing physical. I feared that maybe I would faint when I was on my way somewhere, and that something might happen to me. There was no reason I really would faint. And what I learned was that when you are scared, your heart rate is so high, you technically can't faint. 

This fear of  fear is sometimes still getting a grip on my life, but this: "Whom shall I fear", is something I really need to remember my entire life. So Psalm 27 verse 1 is a verse I want to try to meditate when the anxiety tries to get a hold of me. 

I will be praying for you that whatever your fear is, you bring it to God, and that you me feel strengthened by our beloved Father in heaven. He is the one who helps us through life. We don't have to do it all by ourselves. 

Thanks for stopping by.  For your next stop you have to hop on over to Christel blog.

Love in Christ,

Love this layout Wendy! It is truly amazing what fear can do to us! You can truly be paralyzed by fear and even die from fear. It is good to know that God removes our fears if we will just let Him. Thanks for sharing.
