Releasing the Attachment of Fear

Based on Conquering Fear (part 1)

By: Joya Jackson

What if God isn’t real? What if all things that I’ve worked hard for doesn’t transpire?

What if I fail? Will God disappoint me?  I feel alone, who can I turn to when no one seems to be there? Why me?

             These are only a few questions that wander throughout the minds of billions of people each day. Questions such as these invoke negative thoughts and invite the spirit of fear to enter into the center of where our emotions lay, which is our hearts. The beginning of negative thinking derives from belief systems, which is a state of mind that plays an important part in how we live our lives. When a belief is influenced by negative thoughts, fear has the opportunity to pollute the mind which could result with questions of doubt and insecurities. Doubt and insecurities can then lead to a dissociation with God which will alter the relationship you have with him. One way to enhance a strong belief system is to release and holistically free the mind from any burdening situation while allowing the spirit of God to come into the mind and heart in order to receive the love He has given us.

In order to release, putting complete trust in God is a necessary step even though it may not seem to be the easiest decision when challenges interfere with everyday life.  A popular question people ask is, why should I believe in God when He allows bad things to happen? People are sometimes afraid that if they believe in a higher power that allows negative situations to happen to others (based on their personal beliefs), God will disappoint them as well. This is not true. “All things GOOD or BAD happen for the good” but it requires a spiritual eye to truly understand God’s intentions.

Galatians 5:22,23 states that the Holy Spirit produces the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness, and self-control in our lives.

Three expressions that caught my attention in this scripture are love, joy and peace. These words are essential elements of conquering fear. God is the true representation of love and He cares about our well-being as His children; as a result He will provide protection for us. He doesn’t want us to be afraid of any circumstance but wants us to have peace and trust that He will handle every situation because He has the authority to do so. Lastly, we should constantly remain joyous that He is in control of our lives because He will guide us in the right direction when there is nowhere else to turn and no one to call.

Conquering Fear: Part 1

NAKEDiZE launched its first event the EXPRESSiON on May 4th and was a great success! There was a thick atmosphere of unconditional love as an assortment of Atlantans overflowed Acoustixx Jazz Café to enjoy a great amount of talent expressed by a few of the greatest performers and artists in metro Atlanta. The venue’s ambiance is calm, relaxing and inviting. Not to forget to mention that the Cafe’s food is so good the taste buds in your mouth will crave for more.

DID YOU MISS IT?

FEEL FREE TO ATTEND OUR NEXT EVENT!!!

If you didn’t have the chance to make it to the last EXPRESSiON, You are welcome to come out to our next event that will be held TOMORROW June 1st. This month’s theme is TUNING IN!!

What is this all about???

The focus of TUNING IN is to help us become aware of the chaos and confusion in our lives and the battle that occurs between that and the Peace that passes all understanding.

We should tune out distractions in our lives, including worry and fear, that can keep us from TUNING iN to the frequency of the One who has everything under control. When we keep our hearts TUNED iN to the frequency of the Most High, we can live to our fullest potential in a state of peace.

This reality will be brought to life though creative EXPRESSiON that will symbolize a narrative of real life scenarios.

The theme and style of the EXPRESSiON is new every month… Want to have a mind-blowing, heart-changing, spirit-freeing experience? Come to the EXPRESSiON!

2012: THE BEGiNNiNG

The end of a year is like watching a movie with “to be continued” at the end.    We never know what to expect, but we hope for new opportunities, destined encounters, awesome success and excitement for the new year, but this year is a bit more mysterious…2012(oooooh.. .lol).    Regardless of what will happen that is out of our control(but in God’s hands), we can make choices that determine our destiny.

As far as NAKEDiZE, we have sooo many new oppurtunities for 2012.

NAKEDiZE has now emerged into many parts including the EXPRESSiON and the iOPENER.

The EXPRESSiON is a night of artistic expression of a particular purposeful topic posted a month in advance, where artists of all avenues (musicians, dancers, singers, poets, visual artists, etc.) have an outlet to creatively express a topic that will be discussed briefly later on that evening. The purpose is for creative people to have an outlet to PRISMatically express their hearts in order to spiritually, mentally and emotionally bring betterment to those who are apart of the experience. The topic for the upcoming EXPRESSiON is: Unconditional Love If you are a singer, dancer, poet or have any form of creativity, prepare a piece based on this topic to perform at the next EXPRESSiON.

The iOPENER is a 12-week class for those who want to go deeper. It is for those of us who have a strong desire to get on the path of becoming a better “i,” discovering our true worth and purpose, and becoming transformed from the inside out into our original purpose in Christ. 2nd and 4th Sundays from 6-8pm at the Hosea House 8 East Lake Dr. SE Atlanta, GA 30317

These are just 2 examples of the new things that we have developing within the NAKEDiZE…more to come soon.
