This week’s free printable is an index card printable that I made to help me in the process of overcoming my fears. With a reference to 2 Corinthians 10:4.
Fear has been a bully to me since I was young.
I have had deliverance of some of the really bad fears I used to have, perhaps the worst was the fear of being murdered. (Long story, maybe I will share sometime.) But there are so many versions of fear, and I still battle fears, even though I survived breast cancer treatment without experiencing very much fear of dying from cancer.
I have experienced fear coming on me so quick and so strong that it felt like I was blindsided and knocked down before I knew it. People talk about ‘entertaining’ negative thoughts and all, but I know that I did not knowingly or consciously open any doors to invite this fear to come and have a visit with me.
No, my fears were not like that. I would describe it more as being punched in the face, viciously attacked with a crushing overpowering weight and then being held captive under it with paralyzation, all before I even knew what was happening or even what was assaulting me.
And then there’s the panic attacks. Mine are rather mild compared to some I hear about, but they are still disrupting to my life, disrupting my productivity, disrupting my peace, disrupting my creativity. Also disrupting my kindness and beauty. I know I am not very cute when I am all stressed out with fears!
Well…I am getting tired of all this crap!
I need to get rid of this stronghold once and for all. I don’t have the answers for the whole process of doing this yet, but my freebie this week is a little something that has been helping me to strengthen the attitude I want to have about fear.
I want to see it coming. I want to be ready to fight it, clobber it, destroy it. I don’t want to mess around with listening to what it has to say, or see what it wants to show me. And I most certainly don’t want to be tricked into letting it get close enough while my guard is down so that it can knock me over.
No, I want to tell it to SHUT UP! And I want to be ready to KICK FEAR IN THE TEETH!
I am slowly getting better at recognizing when certain thoughts or feelings are the beginnings of a trap to get clobbered by fear. And that is the best time to Kick it in the teeth.
