Friday, September 6: A story about a time you were very afraid.
Scary movies: you either love em or hate em.
I used to love em. I wouldn't watch them all of the time but I enjoyed watching a scary movie from time to time. I also loved watching those 48hr mystery shows throughout my high school years. I would get nightmares, see people in my room who weren't actually there and hear voices. It was horrible! I couldn't sleep, I always had this sense of fear until one day I realized something....
Scary movies are a tool for the devil to put fear in my heart and mess with my head.
So I stopped.
I stopped watching scary movies, I stopped watching shows that would create fear in me and guess what? The nightmares stopped. I slept peacefully! I haven't watched a scary movie since. I DECIDED to eliminate scary movies from my life. I don't need none of that! The word of God says:
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
2 Timothy 1:7
I NEED a sound mind.
I need it to care for my children, I need it to survive each day, I need the spirit of God!
What's the point of living in constant fear? Why give the enemy a tool as powerful as that to mess with your head and torture your spirit?
NO THANK YOU!
Now I am in no way judging those who like and watch scary movies. I realize everyone is different and some people scare more easily than others. I am one of those which is why I know that watching scary movies in no way helps me with my spiritual walk. The fear I felt after watching a scary movie would overpower me so much that I would forget I had a powerful God.
