Fear is the mother of all invisible fences! It keeps us confined, robs us of opportunities and makes sure our talents and gifts stay tucked away. In this last of the 4 part series on breaking down the invisible fences holding you back, I tackle fear from a spiritual and practical perspective, giving you tips on how to topple this fence and live a life that is authentic and on purpose!
In this episode I dive into my own personal experience with fear, what scripture says about fear and how to handle it along with practical tips such as:
-Examining and reflecting on the core question...why are you afraid?
-Evaluate the cost/benefit of fear
-How to choose freedom over fear
-Taking inventory of your fear by looking at triggers, and how they manifest (for ex. Does fear manifest through one of the other invisible fences such as limiting beliefs, holding onto the past or being complacent in a narrative that doesn’t reflect the story you want to live)
You are more than a conqueror! Don’t allow fear to overcome your faith! Faith is believing what you can’t see and having trust in the Lord’s perfect plan and fear is the exact opposite! Fear is being afraid of what you can’t see, and not trusting in the sovereignty of God to pursue His plan.
When fear is put in its proper context it protects us from danger and keeps us safe when it dominates us it stops protecting and instead prevents us from living authentically.

If you were to leave this earth would the story you have written, your narrative leave the impact and legacy that you want? Are you writing a story that is authentic and genuine and edited by God? Are you participating or are you letting life happen to you? Have you internalized deposits of stereotypes, judgment and labels and adopted them as your narrative? Today I discuss how to break down this fence and live with intention by taking the position of coauthor with the ultimate author, God at the wheel!
In today’s episode I talk about breaking down the invisible fence so many of us struggle with and that is closing past chapters in our life. If we stay mentally and emotionally stuck in the past we can not perceive what God has in store for us. The past doesn’t exist but it can build an invisible fence that keeps you confined to a small place that doesn’t fit who you are in Christ!
Join me for this 4 part series on breaking down the the invisible fences that are holding you back from living an authentic life! In today’s episode I discuss a major invisible fence and that is limiting beliefs! I will give you 3 ways to stop living with a belief system that doesn’t fit who you are or your truth!

Recently, I presented a lesson on Lot's Wife in my Ladies Bible Study and I could not believe how much meat was in my study! This was perhaps one of my favorite lessons. Lot's Wife doesn't even have a name in the scriptures, but her story, has many lessons it in it for us today. I found that we are not so different than Lot's Wife. How often do we look back, trying to hold onto a past situation, relationship, habit, or lifestyle that doesn't fit who we are in Christ. When we refuse to look forward we are living in disobedience and we become immobilized unable to receive blessings or be a blessing!
Take a listen to my lesson on Lot's Wife and if you want to watch it with the slides it is posted on Watch My Bible Lesson on Lot's Wife and the Danger of Disobedience! (faithcoffeeandakid.com). I hope you are as blessed by this lesson as I was preparing it!
