Most of our fears are just imaginary and NEVER come true. Statistically, less than 10% of all fears are realistic, everything else is paranoia and mind games. -
The problem though is, that the devil is having a field day messing with our minds and rattling the fear cage. He knows that if we ponder over our fears we won’t step out, won’t dare and won’t pursue our God given visions and dreams. Don’t let that happen to you.
Every fear you entertain is like an anchor you are dragging behind a perfectly capable vessel. It stops you from going anywhere fast if you manage to move at all.
Identify the source of your fear, deal with the lie and CUT THE ANCHOR.

Where do you turn to when your seas are raging?
NOTHING is too wild, too raging or too out of control for God. As a matter of fact it doesn’t even unsettle Him or raises His heartbeat. He has the ultimate and absolute control over everything.
Knowing that, and knowing the power He has entrusted in each of us we shouldn’t or phased by worldly circumstances either.
I know that is easier said than done, but it is a mindset we can and should aim to attain.
God is in control and through Him we are as well.
That is our #unfairadvantage
Don’t put too much weight on talent. Perseverance you can learn and it gets you so much further than just a bit of talent alone.
“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”
James 1:12 NIV #persevere#success
What do you have faith for?
There are many sections in the bible that clearly state and example that nothing is impossible with faith.
Hebrews 11:1 states it well:
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Faith is the substance and evidence of what is yet to come, of your future, of your God given dreams.
Build your faith, experience miracles. #faith#miracle
Type Yes if you do.
Tag someone you want to read this.
Believe in yourself. If you don’t most others won’t either.
Whatever others may think, say or do, always believe in yourself.
God believes in you, and that’s the only voice that really matters. #believe
Sometimes we just neet to start climbing.
However high the hill is, if you climg a bit further every day, eventually you will reach the top.
One step at a time. #climb#conquerthehill
Type YES if you agree.
Fear is a liar and a destructive illusion. Don't let it enslave you.
You are set free.
You are redeemed.
"You split the sea
So I could walk right through it
My fears are drowned in perfect love
You rescued me
And I will stand and sing
I am a child of God."

Achievement and greatness comes with challanges, battles and likely wounds that will leave scars. However, a scar is only a sign that you have dared, that you took on the challange and that you have overcome.
The wound has healed and you are wiser and stronger for the next battle coming your way.
You were created for a purpose, your composition, your passions and talents are not random, but the answer to a specific need or lack. You are the solution to someone else’s problem.
If you find and pursue your deep gladness you will live happier, more purposeful, more successful and likely help many people’s hunger. #gladness#hunger
So are the next two months. Don’t slow down now. You have another healthy 7 weeks until Christmas. Stay focused. Finish the year strong.
One way to do this is to plan your festive activities early. But your presents now. Whatever you push to the last minute will occupy your mind until the last minute and therefore rob capacity. Don’t let this happen this year.
I’ll certainly try my best to better myself in this area - notorious late planner and shopper #life#live
Remember who called you.
Don’t let your current circumstances define you. Take them for what they may be, a waiting period, a stepping stone, a challenge to grow you or even a distraction.
But always focus on your calling. Focus on Him who called you. #dream#calling

Keep on trying. Don't worry about making mistakes. Use them to learn and try better. Like Edison with the lightbulb, sometimes you first have to find a number of ways something doesn't work before you finally find out what is working. Without making the mistakes you will never get there. #try#tryagain
Listen to this wise man. He did what certainly seemed impossible. Yet, he did it and it’s done!
So did Mother Theresa, the Wright Brothers, Martin Luther King, Sir Roger Bannister and many more.
Now it’s your turn. #possible#justdoit
Whatever I desire to harvest I have to first sow.
But sowing means letting go of what’s in my hands, burying the little assets I have and hoping that I have spread them out into good and nutritious soil.
Only if I am willing to do that will I be able to harvest a plentiful return.
How about you?
What will you do?
Have you ever been through hardship?
Are you experiencing it now?
Get ready for your extraordinary destiny.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
What are you doing today and every day to grow in wisdom?
Stay open, curious and learning. -
“Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.”
“Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise.”
“Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding?”
Job 12:12 NIV
“Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it.”
The only impossible thing in this world is to please and be friendly with everyone. Even Jesus didn't manage that (not that He really tried either).
Live out your passions and purpose. Don't pay attention to the critics and haters, especially as you start out.
Instead, listen to and surround yourself with friends, supporters and other visionaries and dreamers.
Every Minute and
that you wait, procrastinate, hold back, give in, tiptoe around, fear, pretend and conform, you give your critics, haters and, worst of all, the enemy a win. Don't let that happen.
Yes, you may try and fail and yes, they will rejoice as you do, but only due to their shortsightedness, not realising that you will learn, try again and fail again, until eventually you will try, succeed and win!
Live the life that you'd be proud telling your grandchildren about, live a life you'd want to read a book about. And above all live a live that pleases God.
