Strange voices can lead us to strange places, while the Shepherd's voice leads us beside still waters, and restores our souls.
There were many years that I had movement, but no progress, I was a victim for sure.
Progress is a moving forward into new place of success. One of the most interesting things is that I was also successful being non-productive.
I spent many years listening to the wrong voice. I grew up in very negative home, where fear reigned. Fear was instill, and lived out in every way. We were afraid of every thing.
As a result I listened to the voice of fear, and became successful and even gained a masters degree in under-achieving. How did God take me from that place to this place? I started listening to another voice, the Voice of the Father.
God placed me in a new family (www.liftc.com) and while sitting and hearing the Word under new spiritual parents Apostle Jeff & Maria Hunter, I begin little by little to do the Word, The Word of God activated through your actions is what renews your mind.
I started to walk out of fear and victimization on purpose and because of these small steps of faith, that I am still taking, by the way, I'm walking as a son of God as my authentic self and not an orphan.
Until you understand that you can choose to walk out of the victim mentality, you may keep choosing it as a way of life, or maybe fear comes and goes like it does me, but living as an overcoming has become the way I choose to live now!
No matter where you are or what may be coming against you in the way of fear, you can and must keep choosing faith and walking forward.
We will get things wrong, we will get back up, and the main thing, we will not listen to the voice of fear!
You are always giving yourself something"
