Strength Conquers Fear

I read a definition of strength the other day that blew me away:
"The capacity to do something. An inherent capacity to manifest energy, to endure, and to resist." 



I love knowing that with my divine nature comes this incredible INHERENT capacity! I don't have to create it. It is already a part of who I am. I call it forth through faith and prayer and action. Fear weakens my ability to access my strength. I can let go of fear by exercising faith in my Savior to call forth the strength I have been given to fulfill the measure of my creation.


Lots of choices in front of me right now are triggering ginormous fear monsters. They aren't just the big ones like testifying in a criminal case (this morning). It's the little nagging negative thoughts that pile up, telling me I can't...


So, I'm going to remember who I am and why I am here. I refuse to give up or stand quietly in a corner hoping no one can see or hear me. I choose to speak up and speak out...even if it means I get a few stones thrown at me. I'll just chuck 'em at those monsters!

  2. Thanks Kari, I am pulling for you as I fight my own demons! I hear often that each of us has our own "favorite sins." I think each of us have our own "ginormous monsters" too. We may not considert them favorites, but we do allow them and must make the choice to be rid of them.

  5. Amen, Sister Kari! It's no accident that Divine Nature and Individual Worth are two of the Young Women values. So much strength comes from knowing who we are and what we are capable of.
