The theme for November is "Fear-Less". This is personal. As I sat to reflect on this month's theme, I prayed and asked God what He wanted me to write. Pictures began to flash in my mind along with memories about past and current struggles. In that moment I realized the extent to which I have allowed “fear” to drive my life. In the right context, fear is good. Yes, we need to seek shelter from a bad storm. We should be vigilant when walking to the car at night all alone, and so on...
However, many people, especially Ladies, are filled with the type of fears that have no factual evidence or grounding behind them. We trust these fears to guide us because of what we have been told, have seen, and what we have been deceived to believe. Therefore (unless the Lord tells me otherwise) I have had the honor of sharing personal stories that I hope will encourage, but more importantly, push you out of fear’s illusion-based prison.
Here we are at the end of FearLess November! A month where we decided to take back our power and move in to a new, untouched level of ourselves.
What have you learned?
What steps have you taken towards the better future and better you that you know is possible?
I have shared story after story every week this month, but for this week, I want you to write your own story. I have created a “FearLess Affirmation” sheet and I want all of you to read, reread and speak these affirmations aloud each day.
I know the Holidays can be a tough time for singles, marrieds and anyone else who lives on planet Earth with other humans. I hope this list encourages you each day, and if you are not struggling this holiday season, share this list with someone who is.
Write in your own affirmations, make it yours!
It has been my honor bringing you these Dear Wednesday Letters for the month of November. Don’t forget to subscribe to this blog, download the Wix app, and tune in for December’s letters.
