Give a listen to this interesting and entertaining interview by Mr. T. Pay close attention to what he is saying about fear around the 11:39 mark and then when David Letterman asks him a question about needing a bodyguard at the 11:55 mark.
When living life according to God’s will, there is absolutely nothing to worry about. Not one thing. It does us no good to worry, so why do it? We should be living a powerful, God-centered existence, where we fear nothing and are anxious about nothing. It’s a very liberating feeling once we truly understand that God really can bring good out of any situation. We would walk the earth in a way that is free of hate, envy, jealousy and anger. The truth is, fear has a part in all of those emotions.
We will find ways to love people even when they’ve done us wrong. We will find ways to help others, even when they don’t know it’s us. We will live a healthy, joyous and exhilarating lifestyle, that is ultimately pleasing to God.
I’m not all the way there yet and I suppose it will take the rest of my life to perfect it, but I do have moments where I truly have no fear. I am praying that I can extend those moments. My goal is to get better and better, by combating fear with love. Have a great day!
