There is a saying that goes, “Time waits for no man.” One day you are a teenager living your best life and before you know it, decades have flown by.
Our mature years can, and should be, the most exciting time of our lives. We may have envisioned this as the season when we finally pursue life-long dreams. For some it is a wonderful and fulfilling time. For others it is not so as they find themselves paralysed by fear.
Fear of being alone.
Fear of not being needed.
Fear of missing out.
Fear of being unable to support themselves.
Fear of failing health.
Fear of growing old.
In Fearless, a 21 day devotional, I share why there is no need to be controlled by fear. It is possible to break free from its bondage and live life with less fear. We know that lack of knowledge can contribute to fear. For example; if you knew that the neighbour’s dog that you are petrified of does not have teeth, how would that change things for you?
But knowledge alone is not enough. You need to put that knowledge to practice. Knowledge may be power but knowledge which is put into practice is more powerful.
