Eliminating fear requires the vigilance to police your own thinking. You have to be able to swap a fear-based thought for a more positive one. The whole ‘thought swapping’ thing that I have been talking about over the past few days is difficult to do. It is a moment-by-moment practice. My mother has always told me that fear is thinking thoughts that scare you…and really that is true.
When you realize that God is in control there really is nothing to fear, easier said than done I know…yet worth working on.
