Loving In Fear

Hiiii guysssss!!!!!! I knowww, it’s been a longgggg break lol. Well i’ve missed y’all too, and i’m here now! So welcome! welcome! Merry Christmas, Happy New Year…and all of those other cool righteous greetings haha. I’m really really glad to be back with you all…well…

So this might be the shortest, most random post you’ll read hereapart from all these intro tho. The truth is sometimes, school and work and growth happens, shuffling these can be a handful. But I realized that I never stopped writing (in my little mini ‘best-friendy’ journal lol), only that the content might not be well developed enough, so I consider them unfit for the blog, the perfectionist in me won’t let me be smh. But not anymore folks! Your girl is grown now okurrr. I’ve decided to put them out as they come, after all, we’re meant to be growing together eyy? So my tons and tons of personal scribbles are about to come knocking on your door. Most of them might be as short as two-minute reads, but i’m sure they will bless you as much as they bless me…even more.

Ohh and one more thing, I got comfortable putting out some of these short scribbles on instagram before now, so if you aren’t following me outchea @yeuniss, you definitely should. Regardless, being here with you guys remains the main deal, feels like home. So it’s only natural for me to keep coming back. Finally, we might not get to have that many interviews at this period. But worry not! for when they come, they shall be in full force for sure! But for now…let’s enjoy our very short, thought-provoking, heart-warming, life-changing scribbles…….

Up until a few days ago, I didn’t FULLY understand that EVERYTHING void of faith is full of fear. And that means ABSOLUTELY everything. You know when you think of “in-between opposites”…like how the opposite of “good” does not have to be “bad” every time. Sometimes the opposite of “good” can just be “unnecessary,” not like bad bad lol. Yeah, that’s kinda how I thought of fear and faith.

But I’ve learned that everything that stops you from accepting all that Christ has done for, and has freely given you is FEAR…nothing in-between. It might come initially as a minor DOUBT here, a chunk of RESERVATION about some truths there, some DISTURBING questions, or even SUBTLE CRITICISMS. Ultimately, they all lead to fear and really cripple your ability to love…and your openness to being loved.

I know fully well that I am not alone when it comes to playing the “push-the-one-you-love-away” game…oh yes, and sometimes the “I-really-don’t-care-about-anyone-now” kinda lifestyle, i’m choosing to share what has helped me…what still helps me in fact! And I know this struggle might get heightened in this “season of love” (not like every season isn’t lol, but let’s pretend to be normal humans for now), so how about you try addressing the basis? If you’re afraid of expressing to, or accepting love from someone, try asking yourself: “what has God said about me that i’m doubting? What are the treasures in me that I keep questioning? Why exactly do I think i’m undeserving of love?”

Most of the time, you’ll realize that all these started from what someone said to you, or what you constantly saw and experienced. Regardless, you must find out where all these began and address them by applying faith! Don’t let doubtful, disturbing, critical, and negative words settle in your mind for long before you start purifying them with God’s Word. They won’t remain as doubts, questions, or just random thoughts forever, trust me! They will become weighing down creatures, fearful entities…the kind that keeps you awake all night, that makes you isolate yourself, that pushes you to addictions, that steals your happiness and your entire positive energy, and ultimately, that destroys your relationships…or your ability to even build one. So, please! Focus on the basis, find out what exactly, address it and always remember: There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear! (1John 4:18)

Blessings to YOU!!!
