God is not the author of fear. We are.

God is not the author of fear. We are.

This is something that has been on my heart as a coach and teacher, but I don't believe it is just teachers and coaches that feel this way. I believe it is the thread that binds all of us.

It fits in the realm of worthiness and self-esteem (totally ego driven by the way). 😉

I used to get caught up in posting for others.

Creating for others.

Looking for approval and recognition.

How many likes, how many responses, judgment on myself for doing it 'right' or missing the mark. This is why some people criticize social media. But social media is not the enemy. It doesn't provide us with anything we haven't already given life to within ourselves. Social Media just gives us an arena in which to bring to light our beliefs. It is a place for us to practice and learn. And if we let it, it can be a place to foster growth and breaking barriers.

The truth is, in the beginning I was always posting in fear and missing the mark with most people because I was doing it to establish my own self-worth. I am not judging myself for it - at the time I didn't know what I didn't know...until I knew.😉

As long as we dispute our worth, everything we do will be fearful, particularly any situation that leads itself to the belief in superiority and inferiority.

The ego tries to exploit all situations into forms of praise for itself in order to overcome its self-doubts.

When we start to share from a loving place and disengage from the outcome, we will find we are speaking God's truth. Not our own.

I no longer create a program out of fear that 'people won't like it,' or interpret a song in sign language with the fear of being judged, or offer my coaching services in fear of being rejected. I accept my worth is from God, and God alone.

Don't get me wrong, my 'ego-Jen' pops up each time I put myself out there (like posting the song for you later today) 😉, but I have awakened and am aware of the truth that lies within me. The ego is just vying for a place to live and thrives on comparison and separateness.

But the ego is not my truth, light or knowledge. God is.

I surrender my fears because God is not the author of fear, we are.

You are worthy because you are a daughter of God. You need do nothing to 'prove' it. You are living proof.
