A Spirit of Fear


If we give into fear our life becomes limited. Our world shrinks and we get put in a box with walls of fear. Intimidation and fear are becoming more pronounced in our society. Every time a terrorist commits another cowardly act of intimidation, we find ourselves becoming more and more unsettled. When women are harassed and intimidated by people in power. it makes them afraid to speak out for fear of reprisal. Resisting fear and speaking out gives our voice power and strength. This is why we write. Words can make a difference. Don’t be intimidated by fear. Stand and Speak the Truth!


Fear creates anxiety

Believing we are helpless

Unable to control our future

Fear drives us to climb on board

Riding the band wagon of destress

Cheering as we careen toward the cliff

Fear pre-empts good judgement

Listening to our insecurities

Instead of common sense

Fear is grasping for that last straw

Knowing it will not save us

But denying the inevitable

Fear is the method of control and intimidation

For politicians, religious leaders, and jihadi terrorists

Dictators, Presidents, Kings, and Priests

Why do we choose a spirit of fear

When we could have…

‘a Spirit of power, of love, and of a strong mind’ (NKJV)

Light a candle of hope… dispel the darkness of fear
