    I loved you words and your perspective on fear. I am feeling a great deal of fear right now, but I decided to “show up” for life. Courage, like you said, is walking through the fear and your post was perfect for me right now,

    Pretty much my experience as well. In fact you put it almost exactly the same way I do, Fluttering.

    I’ve heard that fear and faith can’t live in the same house. Which implies that if I experience fear, my faith is lacking. So when I hear that fear and faith can’t live in the same house, my question is “Where else are they gonna live?” Recovery doesn’t do away with the darkness, it increases the light and as I walk the path and demonstrate spiritual principles in my daily affairs, I outgrow fear. I’m convinced that I’ll be outgrowing fear for the rest of my life.

    As has been said, faith isn’t a lack of fear. To me faith isn’t a feeling or something I think about much. It sure isn’t this warm, fuzzy feeling that “God loves and everything is going to be alright,” because I don’t always feel that way. Faith is a verb to me, an action. It is paying the money when I don’t think there will be any left over for me. It is telling the truth when it would be easier to tell a lie.
    Peace,
