This is food for thought for the seekers! The Void in every soul can ONLY be filled up in Christ Jesus!
An excerpt from Recapture The Wonder by Ravi Zacharias
“Wretchedness and failure understandably breed cynicism. Power and beauty, we assume, bring contentment. One has lost all hope for what he would make of his life; the other has attained the ideal. But the question emerges, Has he really? On the surface it would appear to be true. Yet I have my doubts.”
Dear friends, family, and acquaintances, I am graduating from the Fearless Speaking Academy!
I will really love you to hear me speak for the first time as a Fearless Inspirational Speaker on stage with the likes of Warren Ryan, Sir Marco Robinson, Christine Handy, Kev Orkian and my fellow Speaking Graduates!
Just a few weeks ago, I started the journey of becoming a fearless speaker – an authentic and inspirational speaker. Here I am about to take the stage with seasoned speakers like Warren Ryan, Christine Handy, Kev Orkian, Marco Robinson and others. You can get your tickets here http://bit.ly/FearlessspeakingJoanSanusi
I met with Warren Inspire Ryan and a host of other learners on this journey. We built a community from all over the world of like minded collaborators, collaborating in ways that I never knew was possible. We became a family and a few of us have met physically too.
We also plan to have a speaking tour of our world together very soon. At the moment, we have our Fearless Speaking Event coming up on June 25, 26, and 27th. It is a virtual event where all of us will share the stage with Seasoned Keynote Speakers like Warren Ryan, Christine Handy, Kev Orkian, Marco Robinson, and others.
I invite you all, friends and family to come and support your very own Joan Sanusi by getting your tickets and get some for your friends and acquaintances. Make it a date to support and cheer me and my teammates on as we step on world stages to make impact.
Fear is a killer. Fear is a destroyer of destinies. Fear is the stealer of good fortune. Fear is a time waster! Fear is one of the tools in the arsenal of Satan. Fear is what principalities and powers use to keep you away from your God given destiny. Fear is what the agent of darkness uses to keep you in perpetual mediocrity. Fear is what oppressors use to keep you subservient to their whims. Fear must never be embraced! Fear must be resisted, and put in its place. Resist and it will flee from you -James 4-7 !
Fear steals your backbone.
There is provision for you and I in 2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. We have an assurance every single day to pick one fear not off of our clothing rack every single day plus 1 extra. We must wear fear not as an armour to deflect ever arrow of fear shot at us. Many Bible schoolers have confirmed that there is 366 “Fear Not” in the Book of Life. Pick one up daily!
Fear is what makes you to know the truth yet keep quiet about it. Fear is what makes you to stay silent in the face of injustice, racism, fascism, and every kind of evil towards others. Fear immobilizes you, and erodes your will power. Fear makes you to be less of yourself. Fear is what makes you to sit when you ought to stand! Fear steals your backbone.
To conquer fear, you must look it in the face without blinking. You must face your fears, analyse it, and come up with strategies to confront it. With fear, you must not take a break enforcing your right. Just a leeway is all it need to control you! Be consciously aware of what is real, what is presenting itself to you as reality, and what the true presenting situation is. Be proactive in confronting your fears
How very little can be done under the spirit of fear. Florence Nightingale, 1820-1910 – English Statistician
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. where the fear has gone,there will be nothing. ONLY I WILL REMAIN. Frank Herbert – 1920-1986 – American Writer
Confront your fear, give it no room, put it where it belongs so you can soar on eagles wings. You are capable of flying friends, let no fear keep you bound!
Doubt comes in at the window when inquiry is denied at the door. Benjamin Jowett – 1817-1893 – Tutor – Administrative Reformer University of Oxford
There are some tables that you and I have been prevented to sit at. Not because you and I are, or were not capable, well dressed, groomed, well spoken, or intellectual.
You and I were hindered because our wisdom, our eloquence, and grace will enlighten the ears and hearts of many.
Believe me when I say those at the table right now don’t want that! They do not want the people to be liberated! The more people are in darkness, the more they will be able to hold sway in the affairs of men.
Therefore, create your own table, call upon like minded individuals to sit with you, let the liberation of the ignorant be your focus, commit your all into it and watch heaven make room for you that no man can stop!
