I knew this would be the perfect book for me to read so I was excited when it arrived in the mail. I know all about fear, because it has lived with me all my life. Every doctor visit I have I feel my heart racing thinking what will they find this time? Yes my mind loves to have me stay in fear, so I'm trapped into believing I can't do anything. I loved when the author said,"Fear wants to kill you deader than a one-star movie!" Such profound words and yet we allow fear to run our lives everyday. Fear wants to take away anything that would hinder us from following our destiny. How many of us have turned down promotions because we were unsure we could do the job?
So what can we do to overcome our fear? The best way is when you feel fear coming on, deal with it then. Don't allow it to get a foothold on you. I think of it like an annoying mosquito that won't give up. It keeps coming back over and over,until finally we have had enough and swat at it. Let's be forceful in ridding ourselves of fear. There is no time like now to stop it and remove it for good. I can't tell you how many days I have stayed in my house because I allowed fear to keep me locked in. This book has really opened my eyes and given me a renewed strength to take my life back. I don't want to live in fear and watch life pass me by.
The author touches on subjects like terrorism, insecurity, and missing out on opportunities. I loved how he gives great examples of how to overcome fear with confidence. God does not want us to be tied down with worry and fear. He wants us strong , confident and bold. Are you ready to win the "War on Fear?"
"God isn't finished with you. It's not over. You can make it over the goal line. There's more for you to do."
I received a complimentary copy of this book from The Book Club Network. This is my honest opinion.
