2019: Birdbox and Fears

Hiya!

It’s officially our first post for 2019! I’m so happy to have you here- both old loyal followers and new followers. I promise to add some spice to your reading list, God helping me.

Let’s start from Netflix. I think Netflix has killed my already nonexistent social life 😂. I found myself on the couch watching movies for the most part of the holidays- which isn’t such a bad thing. Matter of fact, it felt really good to just be Garfield. 🙈I’m back to serious adulting, so let’s get serious.

I finally watched Bird box after my initial fear of watching horror movies . Well, my bff put me up to it. This would be my second scary movie after ‘Split’. That movie freaked me out! 🙈You bet I still watched some parts of Birdbox with my hands covering my eyes 😅.

However, it turned out to be pretty alright. If you haven’t watched it, it’s about this unseen thing that causes people to be suicidal when they come in contact with it using their naked eyes. The way to survive was basically to use blindfolds. Although the unseen killer wasn’t shown, it’s assumed that people got to see their greatest and deepest fears. This was what led to the suicides and multiple deaths. Anyway, I’m not about to get all spooky here. (Oops! Sorry for the spoilers!)

So I have this question for you… What is your deepest fear? Think about it for a minute.

Lately, I’ve been confronted by the fear of loneliness. It’s such a crippling force that whispers ‘you’re gonna die alone’, or ‘nobody cares about you’. Looking at it now, it sounds ridiculous as I have lots of people who care about me. But that’s how fear operates. It magnifies whatever little worry we have. That’s why it’s commonly referred to as ‘False Evidence Appearing Real (FEAR)’.

I don’t know what fears have been lurking in your mind lately, but God said to FEAR NOT! If this means that we begin to wrap our eyes with blindfolds so we don’t see whatever the devil is tryna torment us with, then so be it. Lol, I don’t mean that literally.

Guard your hearts and minds this year. Don’t leave any room for fear which comes with torments. Let God’s perfect love for you cast that fear away. Remind yourself of all God has said in His word concerning you and concerning the year.

I pray that this year surprises you in a positive way.

Have a wonderful week! ❤️❤️❤️

Lots of love,

M.

  1. Love this M.! I think that fear is something we all struggle with – and loneliness is such a common one! I think the key is that whenever those fears start creeping in we need to remind ourselves of God’s truth. When we’re afraid of loneliness, we can remind us that Jesus will never leave us or forsake us. When we’re afraid of the future we can remind ourselves that God makes all things work together for the good of those who love Him! Great first post – I look forward to reading the rest of them this year!😊❤️

  2. This is such an excellent post! I can relate on so many levels! I tried watching Bird Box multiple times and I seriously couldn’t get past the hospital scene where the girl is slamming her head on the glass. Your post kinda sorta makes me want to watch it (it will have to be during daylight and possibly with someone else around haha) because I love the question you pose. I just wrote a post about everyone being broken and learning to look fixed. We all have deep fears that we don’t admit. We suppress them and allow them to manifest and take over our lives. Loneliness is a huuuuuge one for. I recently moved to a new city and I am constantly plagued by the feeling of loneliness.
    Thank you so much for sharing this post. I look forward to following you and reading more!
