OUR FATHER HAS THE ANSWER TO EVERYTHING! HE WILL HELP YOU WITH ANY PROBLEM YOU MIGHT HAVE BUT HE EXPECTS A LITTLE EFFORT FROM OURSELVES ALSO. BUT OUT FATHER IS THE ANSWER. I HOPE AS I KEEP LEARNING ABOUT OUR GOD, I WILL BE PREPARED TO MEET MY MAKER. JUST BELIEVE JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS AND LOVE OUR FATHER THATS ALL HE WANTS IS OUR LOVE. HE SENT US A LETTER AND IT'S CALLED THE BIBLE SO JUST READ IT WITH OPEN EARS AND OPEN EYES AND READ WITH SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING. NOT JUST AS A TREE TRUNK AND THE LIMBS. WHICH THAT IS OUR BODY WHICH IS THE TRUNK AND THE LIMBS ARE OUR ARMS AND LEGS. SO JUST THINK IN THAT WAY IT SEEMED TO HELP ME BUT I HAVE SO MUCH MORE TO LEARN. GOD ALWAYS HAS BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE. GOD BLESS EVERYONE. SHARON

that is a phenomenal answer whhandy...I sometimes think that too and it ties in with actual dying. what will we face in the hereafter. after all, we are only human but as it says in the bible , created in his image. we have free will and make choices, that is something that sets us apart from the almighty. Now, I have done things in my life I am not proud of, and cannot be certain I live a straight and narrow life, but I do try to be good.

I am a Christian so I am not afraid to die, I have already been through my biggest fear- losing my husband. He died last year at 37 yrs old. Sometimes God allows our worst fear to come true to show us we are not as weak as we think we are.

My greatest fear is God. I fear from God very much. Every other thing in this world can create panic and fear for you but these are worldly fears. For example you see a lion and you will definitely be frightened. It is natural. Some fear from heights. Anyone who will see the height first time will have some amount of fear in his heart.

Fearing from God means that you would abide by the laws of God. You will speak truth, never betray anyone, you will be honest, trustworthy and you always give charity to the poor and have a humane heart.

God is your creator and the creator of all the universe so why fear the things which he has created. We must only fear God and not anything else.

According to the bible 'the fear of God' is talking about extreme reverence, extreme respect of Him. Many try to make God out to be a Scary figure but He is a God who describes Himself as intimate, involved, kind, compassionate, accepting, filled with joy & love, warm, affectionate, always with you & eager to be with you, patient, slow to anger, loving, gentle, protective, trustworthy, wants to give you a full life, His will is good, perfect & acceptable for you, full of grace & mercy, gives you freedom, is tenderhearted, forgiving & He calls you the apple of His eye.

I think with all respect, that FEAR Is perhap, the wrong word?. God Is love,pure love. "WE: on the other hand are flawed sinners. (Let him who has never sinned cast the first stone?).I think what I am trying to say Is, no matter how we fail?, If we "Keep Trying to be better". God will understand and forgive us. I dont think "He Exists to make us Fear Him".

My greatest fear is the loss. Loss of time, loss of life and loss of love..., it's a very painful experience to go through loss, but it also makes us become more stronger to face the life in the future, and life just circulates between loss and pain and recovery...

lovelyme - I'll share with you what happen with me if you are interested. For some reason i had began to fear tornadoes and also had developed a fear of losing my loved one to sudden death. When i realized that God says He has not given us a spirit of fear, but instead a spirit of love, power and a sound mind i decided to fight the enemy (devil). Everyday, out loud, I would remind the enemy by saying ie; My God has not given me a spirit of fear but a spirit of love, power & a sound mind. In Jesus Name the spirits of fear must leave & go await your final judgment. It took awhile, but now I have no more fear of tornadoes or sudden death. It's much easier to live in peace rather than fear. Want to know more?

I have a fear of driving..not driving myself, but when I am with other people. I actually have panic attacks and get sick to my stomach. I have tried OTC remedies with no help. I even will change my plans if I know I have to be in the car with someone else. It's embarrassing to tell people because they usually don't understand. If there is not a lot of traffic, I'm not as stressed. I have thought of seeking counseling but don't know how they could help.

I've started to notice this about myself, too. I am not as comfortable driving as I used to be. It's not as extreme as what you're describing, but I feel uneasy driving at night or in unfamiliar areas or with people in the car.

As I got older (I am 61 now), I started having more a fear of driving and it just perpetuated until this! It started when we were living in the mountains and I had to drive the freeway with ice and snow....then we moved back to Phoenix and the traffic in the City is unbelievable! I try not to drive on the freeways. When I drive with my fiance', I drive him crazy...he is actually a good driver.

I would be lying if I didn't have a tie of biggest fears. It is a tie between losing my husband to the war (life and/or emotionally), losing my life to this war (life and/or emotionally), something happening to my child (children in the future) and not being there for my family for a long long time. Of course, like a lot of others, dying scares me because of the unknown.

I have had a recurring nightmare theme for years and i guess its my greatest fear. My son is a toddler and he is standing at the very edge of a cliff. I am on the opposite side and screaming for him not to move. But each time i start to make my way towards him he starts to move and the earth where he is standing begins to crumble away. When i get within arms reach of him he starts to fall over and i dive to grab him. Then i waken up in a cold sweat. So i suppose my fear is the death of a son.

In general terms (Jungian psychology), this is a dream about your fear of being able/unable to protect your son/save him from harm, whether that is the ultimate threat of death or not, and that you may not be able to discern danger to him before it occurs. Of course you have are prepared for the task--you are his loving father.

padraig...you are being tormented - please read Psalm 91 out loud daily and claim it over you, your son, your family until the nightmares stop - it is a passage from the bible for protection - miracles have been reported re: Psalm 91 - let me know if you'd like to hear a couple testimonies

The fear of the unknown is innate--we have it from birth. How honest of you to share this. I don't know the answer; no matter what anyone tells you, no one outside you knows the answer to reassure you. But maybe trusting ourselves and what we know to be true is key, without outside voices telling us what is so. Trusting what our experience is-is exactly what it should should be...

PBfan4 - the bible talks about generational curses being passed down to the fourth generation - such as what you mentioned above. The enemy (devil) wants to put fear in you. If you live in fear, you are not able to live in peace. But there is good news of how the generational stuff can be broken. If want to know, let me know.

My greatest fear... To lose control. I have lost my temper beyond reasoning three times in my teens. I blacked out and when I came to... Well, people were hurt. I learned self control through martial arts and self discipline. Since such instruction, I have never had a single episode.
However, that is only an example of what I mean by losing control. I fear the day when I am unable to control my own body, or even to realize that my reasoning and sanity have slipped. I am terrified of the day when I can not put simple words together to convey my thoughts and feeling to my loved ones. Everyday I let those close to me know how much I value them... I keep my group of friends and family small so that I never have an excuse o miss the opportunity to tell them how I feel. So, I say again, I fear ever losing control.

fontlow - please do not take this the wrong way....i'm not pointing fingers. what you are describing may not have been an actual black-out. There are things called spirits of anger, spirits of violence, spirits of fear. There are multi-tudes of spirits of fear - even such as spirits of fear of losing control. You do not have to live in fear anymore. God says He has not given you a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. So who does the spirit of fear come from? Do you want help?

One of my fears is that too many people judge everyone else for believeing different from themselves. This unwillingness to just "let people be" is what causes war and destruction. There are many beliefs and religions and for one group of people to say they are the "only" chosen ones is WRONG. God Created us all in the image and likeness (read Genesis--it uses the plural when God is talking about the image and likeness). Christianity is one of the youngest religions and for some Christians to claim they are the only "right" religion is ridiculous. I am a very spiritual person and have my own personal relationship with God. Through this spirituality I know it is not my right to judge any one. I am not perfect and therefore I do not have that right. I am also realistic and human so yes I do hold some prejudices and judgements inside--I do my best to not show them and pray about them often. I am not proud of these judgements, but I am human just like the rest of you reading this right now. For anyone to claim to have never judged or to not hold any prejudices, that person is lying. Those people and those attitudes scare me.

I can honestly say that I have no fear. I may get nervous or apprehensive, but that is not fear. True fear is mostly irrational. Just remember the Serenity Prayer. God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

Understanding that can conquer almost any fear.

Am good with my creator,and I trust myself and what god has given me to take care of my children and life necessities.
So my greatest fear is what I might be capable of that I don't pursue because of silly little (ego)fears. My second biggest fear is of abandonment/loss.

My biggest fear is to not being liked. I try my hardest to be nice to everyone I meet. I am the person that holds the door open for you at a store, picks up the quarter you dropped and give it back, the person that gives you a polite smile just because you passed by me. It is just the way I am, but when I find out that someone doesn't like me, I get very offended. I can't stand it.. I dwell on it.. I think over and over what I did wrong. I don't know why I care so much though..

Amore01 noted that i had not noted my greatest fear.... Here it is:

My greatest fear is knowing that people will spend eternity in a terrible place forever separated from God because they rejected His free gift to them. The gift is free to us but it cost Him a very high price. It cost Him everything. That's how valuable you and I are to Him.
Do you get how much He really loves you?

How many people would turn down a free gift to Hawaii or a free gift of an expensive sports car of your choice? How many would say 'no, i do not want the good gift, I'd rather have leprosy or something unreasonably terrible?

Yet many turn down the free gift that God their creator has offered to them regarding eternal life. Instead, they would rather trade in the 'wonderful gift' and exchange it for 'eternal misery.' God wants to give us the 'good' gift not one that is 'terrible.' Any questions on how to receive the 'good' gift?

I fear so many things...but the scariest things are:
Time: When is the right time to do something? What if time runs out? What if this isn't the time for me to be doing this with my life?
Death: What exactly happens when I die? What if I become all alone soon?
Poverty: What if my family loses everything we've worked for so far?
Being alone: Who else is here to actually be with me?
Anger: What if a person's hurt from my anger?
Boys: What are they thinking about me? What if no one ever falls in love with me? What if I never find my love?

My heart goes out to you for being so vigilant about wanting to be /trying your best to honor what you feel you need to be.

Maybe the greatest fear really is fear itself..This concept of living your life in (darkness).Many people I have known in life seem to me anyway miss what the life you were given is all about..I do not believe any god from any religion would put you and me in constant fear of events that we can not possible control..You and me are humans to me the way in which we live our lives, the kind of person we are, what path we pick along the short time we are on this world in my mind is what we will be judged by when our time comes to leave this place..This concept of living in fear I just do not know why so many people live this way..If God was your Father that helped in a small way to bring you here how many times did he teach you to live in fear?..How may times did he try to teach you what really maters in this world?..He didn't drill in your mind the end of days did he?..Teach you to fear even yourself?..No no..The leason learned should be what can I do today to enrich my brothers or sisters life no mater where he or she is..What can my little self do to help another..Isn't that what my father would want me to do?..I do not fear God, in my mind and heart it was not luck at the age of 45 somehow someday I meet my soulmate 8,000 mile away in China..Even this sweet woman knew it was not luck that we meet with half our lives already spent alone..Do not fear God, do not fear life..Your life is what you wish to make of it..It's our choice how we live it

Did you know that 'fear, being scared' does not come from God. He says in 2 Tim 1:7 For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but a spirit of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. If fear does not come from God, who does it come from. The enemy.
