CONQUERING ONE’S FEARS (Part 1) 「あぜりあ」本八幡・西船橋・津田沼・佐倉


Hey! It is I! Your Dear Mary Ann-san! I hope everyone of you is well on this fine day and that your weekend is a worry-one full of enjoyment and relaxation for you and that you are having fun at whatever you are doing. It is my wish for you. Have a great day!


Please do not mind me, your Dear Mary Ann-san, if I just go right ahead and just jump right in here bold as brass and ask you: Have you ever been afraid ? It doesn’t have to be something big. It can be something small. Just anything. A bug is a good example especially if it is a certain kind like a spider or a bee or a wasp. I admit to being afraid of those last two but of spiders I am not.

Your Mary Ann-san is afraid of other things. Heights. Water. ( I never learned to swim and I am not gonna start now!). I probably have other ones that are so small I do not realize it so they do not concern me like the Heights and Water ones. But I am not going to talk about those today. I have two other fears I am trying to conquer. I shall deal with one today and the other one next week. And if you have fears of your own, we can deal with those in here too.

This one, I was unaware I had until a few weeks ago and I am working on it. It is a fear of God. I am not talking about the GOOD fear that we should all have of God. But the bad one. As in, you are scared of God in a way that makes you NOT want to go to your Church Service. That you DO NOT want to read HIS WORD (that is The Bible) and you DO NOT want to hear about HIM and try to avoid HIM. This of course is not good. Because God is LOVE. He is full of kindness, understanding, peace, happiness, joy, caring, and HE wants us to LOVE HIM and not be afraid. So, this morning, before writing this Blog, I did something to help me conquer this BAD FEAR of God so that I can turn it into a GOOD FEAR of God cause I do not want to lose HIM. This morning I did one simple thing. I called up my friend and I went to Bible Study with her at my Church. The group gets together to read the Readings for Sunday Mass and we talk about them. Me, I just listened. I never said one word. But when I came out, I was happy. Peaceful. And glad I went. I want to go next week too. I can’t wait. It is GOOD to FEAR GOD…..but in the GOOD WAY. I want to go to Heaven when I die. I want to be with God and be HAPPY. And as long as you have GOD in your life you can DO and CONQUER anything or any fear.
