Her latest book, Living Courageously, was a welcome read. I often say "Fear is not of God", yet there are times when my fear of taking a chance overwhelms me and complicates my decision-making. It's a feeling echoed by some of my friends who stay in a comfortable position of complacency because we are unwilling to trust God and step out on faith. Yet when you read the stories of successful people, they often mention how their success came as a result of no fear and just doing it.
What They Say:
"Fear commonly affects our ability to live fully, holding us back from what enriches our lives and the lives of others. But our quality of life will improve when we learn how to be courageous in the face of fear.My Thoughts:
In LIVING COURAGEOUSLY, Joyce Meyer explains how, as Christians, we can overcome the paralyzing power of fear by calling upon the Lord. "Fear not" is written throughout the Bible. God knows His children will be confronted with fear, but He can help us resist it.
It is your inherited right as a child of God to live life to the fullest and to enjoy it. Joyce will encourage you to be expectant as you learn to conquer fear, become all God wants you to be, and do all He wants you to do. With a blend of personal insight and inspiring Scripture, this book will help you employ the power of God to overcome fear and achieve your best."
Meyer's book Living Courageously is the reminder some of us need to push forth through our fears. Some of us *points finger at self* need that reminder. Stepping out on faith was a mantra I heard from nearly every presenter at a recent conference I attended. Presenters shared their stories of overcoming simply by doing something they'd never done before. The act of stepping out on faith changed their lives. The book coupled with their stories was the push I needed to face my fears and wrestle up the courage to make a few changes in my life. Look out world!
