I had a great time at the Oregon Coast over the weekend. I did absolutley nothing, but read books and watch old movies with a friend.
I was in Newport, Oregon. What a wonderful coastal town. Not too big, but big enough to have everything you need.
The weather was pretty good, and I enjoyed looking out the window at the ocean.
What things cause you fear? Why do you fear them?
Even Jesus Christ faced fear. He prayed so hard for God to take his cup away from Him that He sweat blood.
Many people’s fear is facing death. I have been close to facing death two times.
The first time was July of 2004. I went in for a routine stress test, and when it was done I was on a gurney being taking from my doctor’s office to the hospital. I had four arteries blocked in my heart. I was told by the heart surgeon that it was amazing that I hadn’t had a heart attack.
The second time was sometime int he last two years. They can’t pinpoint it because all they found on my last stress test was scar tissue from a heart attack I had since my last stress test. They said it was a moderate heart attack. It could have been my last heart attack, but I am still here to type this post.
Do I fear death? Only in the fact that I feel I have so many things I still want to accomplish.
I have written and published my first book, and have at least two others in the making.
But, fearing actual death is not my concern anymore. Why? Because I know I will be going to be with the Lord. I will be with the one person who cared enough to die for me.
The books talks about out fears and how to handle them. It talks about fighting anxiety, depression, addictions, self-doubt, hopelessness, and the many other usual suspects.
If you would like to see the cover, and read what the book is about, go to the top of this page and click on the “bookstore,” tab. There will be a description, and how to order the book.
I hope you will check it out. If you order one and like it, telling others is the best marketing tool and author has.
