Fear vs Love

Now what place has fear in the month of love, you ask? Exactly nothing - yet everything - since they are opposites.

“Love, love changes everything
Hands and faces, earth and sky
Love, love changes everything
How you live and how you die

Love can make the summer fly
Or a night seem like a lifetime”
“Hate is not the first enemy of love. Fear is. It destroys your ability to trust.” Anonymous
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” 1 John 4: 18 NKJV
Breathe deeply, exhale. Now do that thing!

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear.” Mark Twain
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” Nelson Mandela
Tread softly, but walk.
“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” Jack Canfield
“Fear less, hope more. Whine less, breathe more. Talk less, say more. Hate less, love more. And all good things are yours.” Swedish proverb
Want it enough.

“Thinking will not overcome fear, but action will.” W. Clement Stone
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. Go out and get busy.” Dr. Dale Carnegie
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NKJV
Get up and get going.

“F-E-A-R has two meanings:
1.       Forget Everything And Run OR
2.       Face Everything And Rise” Anonymous
“Fear is not real. It is a product of thoughts you create. Do not misunderstand me. Danger is very real. But fear is a choice.” Will Smith
Choices… Make them.
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”  Eleanor Roosevelt
Go through it, not around it.

“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
Isaiah 41:10 NKJV
Help is at hand. Ask...

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” Marianne Wilson & Nelson Mandela
Indeed you are. Believe.

Now go forth and love your beloved… 
Allez maintenant et aimez votre bien-aimé…
