It helps to understand that fear is usually a projection into the future. We typically fear what MIGHT happen rather than what is happening now.

Susan Jeffers notes that 90% of what we fear usually does not materialize. So replace your images of disaster on the TV screen in your mind with awareness of what is really happening. And don't allow your thinking to change channels.

  • How timely! Just before reading this, I read an email about a severe winter storm warning -- heavy lake effect snow, extreme cold, slippery roads, etc. etc. And, fear gripped me. I dread the cold, fear getting stuck out in it, fear crazy drivers on the roads. Then, I read this. I am safe this very moment. Warm, dry and comfortable in my home. Each moment of today will take care of itself as I move into it. I need not fear. I am grateful for a good reliable car with new tires, oodles of good quality, warm clothes, a parking garage at work, and a warm office building in which I work. Thank you, God for taking care of us today ... one minute at a time.

  • Awesome that the timing was so relevant for you Nanzee!! Be safe in that winter storm and stay warm!!! It's been really cold here as well but no snow yet thank goodness!!!!
