R.E.D. ALERT!!! Pt.2 - DON'T BE SCARED!

Greetings!!!
 
Well, BlogFam, we are officially two weeks, 14 days until we prayerfully crossover into another NEW YEAR!  I wanted to remind you today of my R.E.D. ALERTchallenge to ALL of you.  This is the time to REFLECT, EVALUATE, and DECIDE!  Do NOT wait until January 1st, take the time NOW to do so, so that you can begin NOW to get yourself together!  Get AHEAD of the game!  And DON'T BE SCARED!
 
Actually, that is what I want to talk about today - FEAR.  I know that you have heard and read so much on this subject because it is something that is so common amongst people of all ages. FEAR is a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid. 
 
We have all had the experience of having this emotion aroused inside of us for a plethora of reasons and on a countless number of occasions.  As for me, I will admit that I have felt the emotion of fear because of one particular creation that our God has made and what so many have called man's best friend. I AM SCARED OF DOGS!  A GREAT fear is aroused in me, a very distressing emotion because of my perceived impending danger in the presence of dogs - whether the threat is real or imagined.  
 
There are two times which proved to me that my fear was legitimate and both took place as a child.  I was a Girl Scout when I was a kid.  One day, we were having a play day at the Scout Leader's home.  The girls were all outside and we were having a great time jumping on the trampoline.  Well, I needed to get off because I had to use the bathroom.  I got off the trampoline and when I got off, I did not see their Doberman Pinscher underneath the trampoline but he saw me!  When I got off of the trampoline and perceived this impending danger, I RAN and he chased me all the way to the door of the house.  On another occasion, my fifth grade teacher asked me to run an errand for her to the office or the library or something.  Anyway, on my way back to the classroom, I see a dog under the breezeway that has obviously made its way on campus to terrorize kids like me!  (LOL)  Well, YES, I was scared and I RAN again, running and crying all the way back to the classroom.  When I got in the classroom, of course everybody wanted to know what happened.  I was so embarrassed and so scared and I obviously have not forgotten the FEAR of either of the moments I have shared with you.  **Deep Sigh**
 
The truth of the matter is that, as adults, we often have had past experiences  - many times before the age of 18 that planted a seed of fear inside of us that keeps us from moving forward in other areas of our lives.  YES, I will admit that I am still scared of dogs BUT since those two life threatening experiences (LOL), I have been introduced to several dogs that have been friendly and playful and that has helped me to know that NOT all dogs are out to get me!  Since I have taken the time to REFLECT on the positive experiences I have had with dogs and EVALUATED how those experiences, this process has  in some very small way negated my fear.  I have now DECIDED that I will be open to getting to know man's best friend slowly and only through mediated occurrences. [Pray for a Sista! LOL] 
 
BlogFam, DON'TBESCARED!  As we all prepare to enter 2012, let us check our fears at the door so that we will not be paralyzed by what we perceive to be as real, so that we can embrace the idea that there really may be good to come out of bad situations, and if we need help to move us in a more positive direction, then let us all get the help that we need so that we can move on!!!

Greetings! TWIN!!! It is so good to know that we are so not alone on this journey and that even when fear rises inside of us, OUR FAITH IN GOD can conquer our deepest and our greatest fear! Keep the faith! Keep pressing on! I LUV YA!
