Eradicate Fear

Trepidation can control our thought patterns (usually negative) which can result in isolation, separation, and cause irrational fear! Fear is counterproductive; it can lead to resentment or hatred in the end, in some cases to apathy. Trust exterminates fear, trust and fear doesn’t co-exist simultaneously, they are two different energies entirely. Life happens to us all, but there’s a big difference between having fear and being driven by your fears. It can inflate your insecurities and anxieties. Letting go of fears allows us to tap into our power, and radiate inner strength and charismatic energy to the rest of the world. eradicate-fear

Unenthusiastic, Indifferent, Negative ThoughtsUnenthusiastic, Indifferent, Negative Thoughts: So, it’s normal to have negative thoughts. It’s part of our evolutionary heritage. Rumination, (reflection of negative thoughts) is counterproductive and sometime escorts you into a dark abyss. The problem is that we become “fused” with our negative thoughts–fused as in joined together as a whole. We don’t step back to get a better perspective.

Patience Reduces Anxiety

Patience reduces anxietyThe Power of Patience

Patience reduces anxiety: I believe with patience and learning to be grateful for the less important things surrounding our lives, we can brighten and contribute to a more fulfilling existence. We sometimes overwhelm ourselves by losing focus on the better things that are happening around our daily lives. The mind will find answers if you relax and give it time. It is so easy to get swept away by impatient anxiety and the fear of everything falling apart! A gentle reminder that the answers will come, all in due time!

god-essence-love

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails” god-essence-love

LADY AT THE WELL

Only through Jesus can we obtain and receive eternal life: “Jesus answered, ‘Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life’” (John 4:13–14; cf. John 14:6).

There are many similarities between water and God’s gift of salvation:

  • Water is necessary for LIFE; so is salvation.
  • Water is a gift from ABOVE; so is salvation.
  • Water REFRESHES and SATISFIES; so does salvation.

Jesus’ ministering to those outcasts of the Jewish society (the Samaritans) reveals that all people are valuable to God and that Jesus desires that we demonstrate love to everyone...

Who

father-son-holy-spirit: The Christian doctrine of the Trinity holds that God is three con substantial persons or hypotheses—the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit—as “one God in three Divine Persons”. Each of these three persons is said to be equal to the others, almighty, and without beginning. According to the Trinity doctrine, therefore, the Father is God. The Son is God. And the Holy Spirit is God, yet there is only one God.

During Jesus’ time, many Jews took such pride in their cultural and religious heritage that they considered Gentiles “unclean,” calling them “dogs” and “the UN-circumcision.”
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. So that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus alluded to the common association of Gentiles with paganism. “If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?” (Matthew 5:47, ESV).

In another place in the same sermon, Jesus noted...
