the “Ghosts” Are Standing in Your Way

There are six basic fears, with some combination of which every human suffers at one 
time or another. Most people are fortunate if they do not suffer from the entire six.

Fear of Poverty
I have been there and it is scary, at one time in my life I did three jobs so that we
could pay our bills. The Lord brought us out of that situation. We may not have as much
as we would like to have, but we have what we need.We also are striving to get better,as
Michael says do whatever it takes.

Fear of Criticisim
That was a big fear early in my life,through prayer, this Mastere Mind group God's 
help guiding me I don't care what other people think of me, I am only concerned 
how I feel about myself  

Fear of Ill Health
Yes I have those fears too When I was told I had prostate cancer. When I was asked 
by the doctor how do you want to treat this cancer. With very little thought I said 
get it out of my body. My wife and I are both healthy (a Great Blessing) 

Fear of the Loss of Someone

About years ago my best friend and Brother-in-law got bit by that little mosquito and
because other health issue he was very sick and contracted (West Nile Virus) to the 
point that he did not recognize anyone, not even his wife. We were told he may not live.
Forunately through prayer,long stays in the hospital,rehab centers and God's Guidance 
he regained all his senses and was completely healed. This was a very trying time 
because we were very close friends.

Just one year ago when I called to congratulate him on his birthday, his daughter 
in-law answered the phone and said we found Roland this morning laying on the floor 
and unresponive. Later that afternoon he passed into Glory. 

Fear of Old Age
I used to think about that a lot but as I aged it became less of a fear. I have 
Blessed in so many ways. Today the Lord has Blessed me with 82 years on this earth.

Fear of Death
That has also become less of a fear for me. I may have had some very challenging 
and scary times in my life but have been Blessed in so many ways.I have the promise 
of Eternal Life and I am at peace with that.

Thank You to Linda & Michael Dlouhy fo creating this platform and the Master Mind 
group were we can be educated and learn from other members of the Group.

Thank you to my friend Bob Shoaf that found me and gave me an opportunity to better
my knowledge of who I am and what is possible.

Thank you to all that write lessons each week and share their knowlege.
