The Power of Love and a sound mind

We can have the control, dominion and supremacy to make whatever into a reality. A burning passion and a deep desire to not lose control and hold on to the dream is the fight that happens often in our head. This fight is orchestrated by fear that fights our faith. Fear can be viewed as a feeling or emotion.

Fear when accompanied by bodily reactions would signify strong emotional response to a situation or an object or event. Since fear is internalized, fear would naturally begin with a feeling or a subjective component. This means the individual would first "feel' afraid of the situation and then react to it. Such fear in which the individual is conscious of the emotion and reacts strongly to it is generally an emotional response and this sort of fear is thus manifested as a strong emotion.

Fear as Feeling - Fear could however be simply manifested as a subjective feeling, a sense of uneasiness or unconscious perception of some sort of danger or threat that may not evoke strong bodily reactions.

Regardless to the feeling or the emotion we still can dominate our thoughts with the love of Christ that will make our minds intact when we are under attack by a strong emotional event. During the emotional battle we will feel a sense of uneasiness. This is considered a fiery trial that comes to test our faith in the God that has given us the dream but we must stand on our faith. If we stand on the confidence during a crisis a solution will come to an open mind. Fear can cause our minds to close up and doubt. Yet the scripture states “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
