Will I let fear control my emotions and my actions? The Big Book says fear should be classified as stealing. When we are controlled by fear we are being shut off from the Spirit. When we are shut off, we take back control, and then these fears usually get worse or become our reality. When we can truly face our fears with God’s help, it’s amazing how small they become. Bad things we thought would happen don’t happen.
God, please see me through the hard times when I don’t see a way out. Take my fears from me so I can be of use to my fellows, and they will see through me that anything is possible with your help.
