This is a guest post from my 10 year old daughter Joann. A couple of days ago she was watching the Pokémon Movie on television. She sent me a text message with the following quotation that she came across in that movie. I ask her if she could write about it and here it is….
Fear is your greatest enemy. You must learn to conquer the fear that lives in your heart, then you will be free. -Pokémon Movie
What is Fear?
Fear is getting scared to do something you want to do, but afraid to do it like talking in front of people to share your ideas or perform in a play. Fear can keep you from doing the right thing. Fear can hold back your dreams.
How do you Conquer Fear?
You have to know what you’re afraid of and think of ways to make your fear go away. Pray and ask God to give you the courage. Then you can speak up to share your ideas in front of people or perform in a play without fear.
The Holy Bible says “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”- Philippians 4:6-7
What it means to be Free?
Being free is to speak up share your ideas without fear. You can conquer your fear and enjoy your life to the full. Being free means doing the right thing even when no one else is doing it.
