Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy
Welcome to Day 678 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
Half 0f Our Fears Are Baseless
Thank you for joining us for our 5 days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 678 of our trek time for our Philosophy Friday series. Each Friday we ponder some of the basic truths and mysteries of life and how they can impact us in creating our living legacy. We are focusing on how to live with less fear. Since Paula and I will be traveling for business the last half of August, I will be recording all these podcasts in advance, so we will be substituting our regular podcast with short Wisdom Nugget episodes for three weeks. After that, we will return to our regular format.
This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Christian Bovee, and it is, “There is great beauty in going through life without anxiety or fear. Half our fears are baseless; the other half discreditable.”
Half of Our Fears Are Baseless
What fears do you have in your life? What are those fears based on? Are your fears just in your mind or something that has actually happened? What is the worst case scenario if your fears came true? I realize there are some situations in life that truly cause us to fear, and there are certain situations where there is a high likelihood of death or bodily harm that we should avoid. The fact is, though, that most fears that we deal with on a daily basis do not have any basis to them or can be discredited with sound logic and faith that God will protect us.
Even if our worst fears were to happen, nothing good is produced worrying about them ahead of time. We can imagine all sorts of negative things when we contemplate something we’re afraid of, but this doesn’t make those things real. With God’s power through His Word, you need to face your fears. The fears you don’t face control you. The fears you face, you move beyond.
God tells us in Deuteronomy 31:8, “Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
Next FearLess Friday we will look at another Wisdom Nugget about being fearless. I know you will find these insights interesting and profitable in living a rich and satisfying life. Our next trek is Mindshift Monday where we will help you live differently by thinking differently. So encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along on Monday for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
If you would like to listen to any of the past daily treks or read the associated journals, they are all available at Wisdom-Trek.com. You can also subscribe through iTunes or Google Play so that each day’s trek will be downloaded automatically.
Thank you so much for allowing me to be your guide, mentor, and most of all your friend as I serve you through the Wisdom-Trek podcast and journal.
As we take this trek of life together, let us always:
- Live Abundantly (Fully)
- Love Unconditionally
- Listen Intentionally
- Learn Continuously
- Lend to others Generously
- Lead with Integrity
- Leave a Living Legacy Each Day
This is Guthrie Chamberlain reminding you to Keep Moving Forward, Enjoy Your Journey, and Create a Great Day Every Day! See you on Monday!
