FIVE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO KEEP YOUR KIDS SAFE THIS HALLOWEEN

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
CHECK OUT THESE 5 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO KEEP YOUR KIDS SAFE ON THIS HALLOWEEN

 HALLOWEEN DAY CAN BE A LOT OF FUN FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY IF WE TAKE DRASTIC MEASURES TO KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE.  I HAVE INCLUDED 5 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO KEEP YOUR KID OR KIDS SAFE THIS TRICK OR TREAT NIGHT.
  1. INSTEAD OF ALLOWING YOUR KIDS TO GO TRICK OR TREATING AT NIGHT, YOU CAN FIND THE LOCAL FALL FESTIVALS WHICH ARE SO MUCH MORE FUN BECAUSE NOT ONLY DO THE KIDS GET CANDY, THEY GET TO ENJOY ALL OF THE ACTIVITIES AT THE FESTIVAL.
  2. YOU CAN TAKE YOUR KIDS TO LOCAL CHURCHES.  A LOT OF CHURCHES ARE HAVING CANDY FOR KIDS AT CHURCHES NOW A DAYS.
  3. YOU CAN TAKE YOUR KIDS AROUND TO LOCAL STORES WITH THEIR COSTUMES ON WITH THEIR TREAT BAGS TO BE FILLED WITH GOODIES!
  4. IF YOU'RE GOING TO ALLOW YOUR TEENAGER TO GO TRICK OR TREATING, DON'T ALLOW THEM TO GO ALONE. GROUPS ARE SAFER AND FUN AS WELL.
  5. LASTLY, IT'S ALWAYS A GREAT IDEA TO WAIT UNTIL YOUR KIDS GET HOME TO ALLOW THEM TO EAT THEIR CANDY, AND YOU  WILL BE ABLE TO CONTROL WHAT THEY EAT AS WELL AS HOW MUCH.  HERE'S A TIP.  INSTEAD OF LETTING KIDS EAT AS MUCH CANDY AS THEY CAN ON HALLOWEEN, COLLECT THE CANDY AND USE IT AS AN INCENTIVE.
I WANT TO WISH EVERYONE A HAPPY AND SAFE HALLOWEEN DAY!

Overcoming fear


 This post will show you how I got the victory over  fear.  Thinking back over the years,

I don't know why I was so fearful, but as far as I can remember, I was always fearful of speaking in front of others, at church and everywhere which left me feeling guilty and less than others!    Even during bible teaching when the crowd was small, I was afraid to speak my thoughts.  At work, I had to say a few words before others and fear caused me to get nervous and my words didn't come our right.  It wasn't that I didn't have anything good to say, because most of the time, I did have good points to make, but I was always afraid my words wouldn't come out right, and usually, they didn't. Finally, I got tired of being defeated by fear and started sincerely praying to God and asking him to deliver me from the spirit of fear, and I began to read scriptures related to fear and where it originated and how to overcome it.  Praise the Lord because my strategies worked for me and I'm confident they'll work for you as well. 

Here's a short prayer that  helps to overcome fear
I will not be intimidated by anything of this world. I renounce all fear of intimidation and control, in the name of Jesus Amen.

HERE IS A LIST OF SCRIPTURES THAT HELPS TO OVERCOME FEAR

2 Timothy 1:7 says, "God has not given us the spirit of fear  but of power, love, and a sound mind." 
the acronym for fear is F= false E = evidence A=appearing R=real, false evidence appearing real. 
Psalms 27:1 says, " The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?" So, I was aware that fear is from the devil, but I believe that something happened in my childhood that caused me to have such fear of failure.  Prayer, reading the scriptures and reminding yourself daily of the scriptures and reminding yourself daily that being afraid of things going wrong, isn't the way to make things right
