It is Time to Fearlessly Live as Yourself!
Welcome to the Missing Link Blog. A space created to provide the essentials you need to connect with God, live in purpose, and develop and grow into your best.
Fear can literally paralyze the view of yourself, your dreams, and your ability to make things happen. It’s time to overcome the barriers that keep you living below your full potential, one courageous step at a time.
This article will teach you how to eliminate doubts, fears, worries, and anxiety to fearlessly live as yourself. You’ll be reminded to view yourself through the eyes of God so you may grow confident in who you were created to be; soaring beyond thoughts, heights, and limits designed in an attempt to keep you small.
God will never leave your side. No matter how dark it gets, God’s love will always reside.
God does not think in fear! God is love, and love….is always with you.
You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
It is better to believe than to doubt. Use your mind to your advantage.
Being yourself gives you the wings to fly heights beyond your wildest dreams.
Living your best life requires you to courageously step forward; going beyond feelings of doubt and fear. Allow these biblical verses to soothe your mind and heart in God’s promises for you; remembering who you are and the safety that abides in God's unwavering love and faithfulness.
When God describes himself - the attributes are positive, loving, supportive, successful, blessed, covered….the list of goodness could go on and on. Fear and doubt are attributes that do not represent or reflect who God is.
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” - Isaiah 41:10 NLT
Today, I want to spend this time providing you with scriptures that help you remember who you have on your side, in your heart, all around you, at all times. God will never leave you nor forsake you (1 Kings 8:57) and his track record for keeping his word is perfect, so why fear? Why worry? Why doubt?
When I’m carrying those kind of feelings, it's usually because I have allowed something, including my own thoughts, steer me away from remembering that God is with me, loves me, and only wants the best for me - when I face my fears, I’m giving myself the opportunity to grow more into who God has called me to be.
Below are the scriptures I want you to read and memorize. They describe the goodness and love of God. When you are carrying those ungodly feelings around, find these and remember…God is with you.
Here are 10 Reasons you Should Overcome Fear and F.LY:

His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning."; and Psalm 136:1 "Give thanks to the Lord for He is good. His love endures forever."
God Don't Play!

Are you not much more valuable than they?"; Numbers 23:19 "God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?”; and 1 Samuel 15:29 ‘He who is the Glory of Israel, does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a human being, that he should change his mind.”

He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake."; and Psalm 116:5 "The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion."

He will take great delight in you; in His love He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing."

God Created and Manages Everything...and is Handing out Blessings!
Psalm 103:19 "The Lord has established His throne in heaven, and His Kingdom rules over all; 1 Chronicles 29:11-12 "Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O LORD, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things. Wealth and honor come from you alone, for you rule over everything. Power and might are in your hand, and at your discretion people are made great and given strength.."
A Rich & Generous Father
Philippians 4:19 "And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus." and; Revelations 21:5 "He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
Read the scriptures.
Fearlessly Live as Yourself!
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)
If feelings arise that don’t make you feel a powerful burst of love and self confidence they are not of God, but don’t worry, You’re not alone in experiencing these feelings and thoughts. It’s our response to fear that allows us to either increase the doubt or release it all. When fear arises, take time to intimately connect with God. Remember, no matter where those fears originate, He is right there with you, loving on you and ensuring that you are victorious.
Embrace the power. Embrace the love. Embrace the confidence.
God is with you.
