Fear Fighting by Kelly Balarie - REVEIWED

About the Book:
We all live with fear. It hangs around, whispering in our ears, reminding us of all we can't do or will never be. But that's not the end of the story. We also have a God who draws close to say, Fear not. I am with you. This Spirit transforms us into fear fighters--women breaking free of trepidation to find bold dedication to God's peace-, purpose-, and joy-filled callings.

With remarkable compassion born from personal experience, Kelly Balarie shows women how to

· Cultivate unstoppable faith by harnessing God's Word and promptings
· Usher in lasting peace through prayers that reduce panic, blood pressure, and stress
· Discover clear and immediate action plans to exchange worry for God's greatest gifts
· Implement daily bravery decrees to stand armed throughout the day
· Participate in a twelve-week study guide to foster new courageous habits

Kelly pulls back the curtain of fear so you can find the beautiful woman God created you to be.

My Thoughts:
“It is by dwelling with the Spirit that we go about abiding in the Lord.” (p.108)

Once again, God has set a book in front of me at a providential cross roads in my life.  Fear Fighting is a book meant to equip believers with truth and testimony of God’s faithfulness when we keep our eyes fixed on Him instead of our circumstances.  Fear is one of the enemy’s deadliest weapons.  If it doesn’t derail our lives entirely, it keeps us so distracted that we fail to follow God’s plan laid out for our lives.

Kelly Balarie has had to face some terribly fearsome foes throughout her lifetime, and she uses what God has taught her through those experiences to give an encouraging lift to others along the journey.  She devotes an individual chapter to some (six) of the most common places that we allow fear to creep into our hearts.  Balarie gives us examples from her own journey and those of others who give a face to each area of fear, and they she uses God’s truth to strip away each fearful nuance and leaves us with the truth of God’s Word and His presence in many of life’s very difficult circumstance.

We must always remember that earth is NOT our home, but rather the enemy’s battlefield.  We must walk onto that battlefield armed and protected by God’s truth and keep our eyes fixed on Him.  Balarie has included a study guide for each chapter in the book, so this book becomes a useful tool to equip us as believers and gives us something we can share with others who are fighting alongside us.

This is a book rich with resource and I can’t wait to see how God uses it to help His children to overcome their fears and walk confidently into His perfect plan.
