My faith is mightiest of all. Fear holds me down to seem mighty, but now that I no longer partake in anything scary I see fear for what it is; that it’s very influential but that it’s not mightier than my faith.
Fear’s influence seems powerful and controlling, but the truth is that it has no power over me unless I allow it. When I let myself get scared and am fearful I ignore my feelings. How can I let my conscience guide me when my conscience is a feeling that I ignore?
Truth: Good hearts are not scared but have peace, feel calm, enjoy tranquility, trust in good promises, know confidence, show love, display happiness, and partake in all good things including fun, humor, laughter and joy. Let us achieve our goals, freely.
The other day I fell asleep in the living room. A loud clanking noise happened followed by the noise of rustling paper and it greatly startled me — my heart pounded and the noises woke me up — but I never felt afraid.
I’m in control of me and don’t let fear direct my life. I know where to put my trust, listen to my heart and manage my feelings. Yes, my faith is bigger than fear but nothing will stop me from partaking in scary things but me, and so I choose what’s good. I love this promise in the scriptures:
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
