while Growing in Grace"

I want to take a moment to look at some facts about Fear.
According to Psychology Today Fear is a normal brain function –it is electrically and chemically stimulated when networks run back and forth from the prefrontal cortex and the limbic system in the brain.
At its worse, fear can leave a permanent mark on the brain circuitry, which can result to needing professional help. Chronic stress, anxiety, constant worry, and daily insecurity can quietly but seriously harm physical and mental health over time.
The fear most of us may suffer from is the fear that is imagined. Neuroscientists’ claim that humans are the most fearful creatures because we have the ability to learn, think, and create fear in our minds. We create something from what we perceive may be or happen.
These truths can help recognize the type of fear in our life that needs to be eradicated. Next week, we will take a moment to talk about reverent fear.
Thank you for sharing…A MOMENT WITH MELISSA!
