What I Know Is True

Sometimes I get this pain in my chest, and it practically stops me in my tracks. Now, I have learnt to stop and breathe it out, but that hasn't always been the case. There was a time when this pain came everywhere with me. This pain even had a name! This pain was and is fear. 

There was a time when I let this pain consume me and when I let fear rule all my thoughts. 
I am not saying that I have conquered fear but I will not let it take over anymore. 

When fear comes knocking I hold on to what I know is true. This has taken a lot of effort and determination as I cannot see what I know is true. However when I breathe out truth instead of filling up on fear, I might not be able to see truth, but I do feel peace. 

What is the truth I hold on to? It is the strong foundation that I am trying to build on. It is Love, Faith, Joy and Hope. 

I am loved, with a love that is lavished upon me and because of this amazing love, I have faith, joy and hope. No one can take that love away from me as it has been given to me even though I do not deserve it. When I remove the doubt that I do not deserve to be loved in such a way, I remove the fear that I am not good enough. I stand completely surrounded by love. 

When fear comes I try not to let it take hold. 
                             I still my heart and then fill it with truth. 
                                            Wonderful truth...
                                                                                     ...and the promise of a new day.
