“Having fear isn’t failure. Holding onto fear is.” Jon Acuff

For your consideration….

We think of “paralyzing” fear as being a major event. Our message today says not so. It can be, but without judgment all fear is the same.

Specifically today we are given the example of fear of the future… the unknown of the future. We cling to what we know because of fear of what we do not. We cling to “a sure thing” versus taking a chance on what we really want.

We let our fear make mountains out of mole hills. We are reminded to let go of judgment and chunk the future out. Think about it. We do not know what the next moment will be and we are not normally afraid of it. That next moment is just a bit of the future. It carries the same amount of importance. We know we can handle it. Now know that we can handle our future. We have all the right stuff.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Meditate/pray….ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Let go of fear of the future. Go for your dreams.

What made me smile yesterday….

-A beautiful day.

-An easy morning.

-A great time taking pictures for Peanut’s first homecoming.

-Dinner with my daughter. It has been a long time since it was just us.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
