Face Fear with Power

It’s crazy to think that we are now in the last week of October! Before we know it, the year will be over and a new one will begin, but, before all that, we still have one last movie to get to in this series! All month long I have been talking about how to face fear. Week one we looked at the importance of having people in your corner, then week two we looked at how to face fear that you created, and last week we looked at how to face fear that is out of our control. In each of those weeks, facing fear comes down to our relationship with our creator. Different circumstances, but the same loving God in all things. Today, I want to talk about how being in an active relationship with Christ, allows us to tap into great power. Power that can be used to face any fear, no matter how dark it may seem.

I love this season, plus I always love the spooky movies that make the feel even better. Now, I don’t love the intense horror flicks, but I do love b-movies. The term “b-movie” is an old film term, theaters would have a-movies with the higher budgets and star power in the old nickelodeons, but the b-movies played much later. They were low budget and often were spooky in nature, but seeing the strings on a flying saucer doesn’t really make you terrified. Every October, I like to write about these cheese-fests and talk about some lessons we can all learn from how these movies tackle fear inducing situations.
