MOVING FROM FEAR TO FREEDOM

THE UPSIDE OF FEAR

To all my readers,

I admit it, fear is no stranger to me. My earliest recollection of its presence in my life traces back when I was 4 years old. At that time, my family lived in a farm far away from the city of the Philippines. My father was a farmer and my mother was a homemaker. I was player outside our house when the twister hits our surroundings. I experienced and watched firsthand the formed of twister that everywhere it passes destroyed everything. I was then blown away and landed in between trees, bushes, and rocks. That was my first. My imagination worked overtime, especially when I was outside alone to play. I was sure that the wind will blew me away and that I would die. My childish thinking told me that leaving the house meant losing my life. So rather than fall prey to the fear of going out to play, I’d  stand at the door and take a flying leap toward where I want to play to get beyond its grasp. My strategy obviously worked-I’m still alive and well today.

Fear stayed with me for quiet a while, but only after mastering every ounce of courage within me, I overcome fear  by reassuring myself that God will take care of me.

As a grown woman, I face other fears. I’m worried about my kid’s well-being. I’ve fretted over my bank account .I worried about the future of my business.  I’ve stewed over my feeling inadequate, I’ve panicked when personal storms have blown in and threatened to shake my world. Can you relate?

Be honest. I know you understand what I’m talking about. I conducted my surveys whenever I talk to men and women. The results only confirmed what I suspected, I’m not the only woman of all ages struggles with negative fear. It affects women of all ages and from all walks of life, often signalling its presence by provoking apprehension, premature wrinkles, stomach pains, tension headaches, and sleepless nights. If left to run rampant, it can rub us of joy and the power-filled life that God intends for us.

Unfortunately, fear is still on the scene today. It can interfere with our relationship with God, just as it did for Adam and Eve. Or – here’s the exciting part— it can be the catalyst for a deeper relationship with Him. Every time we’re afraid, we can either forget faith and try to do thing s our way ( as of that’s really going to work!), or we can acknowledge our fear and call out to God for help. When He answers, we experience Him in a new ways. That’s the upside of fear.

Life is too short to spend it battling fear and its negative affects. Besides, God has better things in store for us. He wants us to embrace each day wholeheartedly and make every minute count. He wants us to live to our full potential and leave a mark coming generations. He wants us to impact our families, our church, our communities, and ultimately the world for Himself. I want that too. Do you?

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

  2. I have a wordpress blog now, but I can’t figure out how to get readers into there!

I already utilize tags, but I still only got about 89 views in two weeks. . . . Thanks in advance–serious answers only, please!.

    Asian women and Latinas are among the prettiest races in the world. They are petite, graceful, sexy, and beautiful. Compared to Western women who are sophisticated and tall, Asian and Latina women look delicate. This innocent and delicate look brings out the protective instinct if the man. It’s also good for their ego. Men want to protect women because he feels stronger and more powerful. He knows that the woman depends on him and it gives him confidence.
