What is your definition of ‘fearing God’? I have found that people have so many different views. Last night in SOULFOOD SUNDAYS, I took a leap into a touchy and uncomfortable topic to discuss. I shared how I felt hurt by ‘religious people’ and the church when it came to how they presented God. As this thought that one must FEAR GOD and be almost paralyzed with fear.
Have you experienced this? Have you been taught to fear God and that you are a sinner and presented in such a way you feel dirty?
I want to encourage you today to face it, face it with knowing that God is on your side. He is always there and will never leave your side, but you have to know it, and lean to him.

“Fear; what is fear Mami” my almost three year olds asks me. I take a deep breath as I am thinking oh, no where do I begin. The first words that come out of me is, “Fear does not exist; it is something that we create”. But obviously he has heard this word and has used it in several contexts that demonstrate he is in fear base moment. When he first began to say, “Tengo miedo (I am afraid)” my response was, “Don’t be afraid; you are not alone. God and the Angels are with you”. But, when he asked me what fear was I really had to pause for a moment.
When we come into this world, we are born with two fears; fear of falling and fear of noise. Then somewhere along the line we become those crazy, worrying, non-risk taking versions of ourselves that we often refer to as adults.
