Endigar 415 ~ The Soul-Sickness of Fear

My sponsor called me this morning and had me read the following from the 12 & 12, page 49;

“All these failings generate fear, a soul-sickness in its own right.  Then fear, in turn, generates more character defects.  Unreasonable fear that our instincts will not be satisfied drives us to covet the possessions of others, to lust for sex and power, to become angry when our instinctive demands are threatened, to be envious when the ambitions of others seem to be realized while ours are not.  We eat, drink, and grab for more of everything than we need, fearing we shall never have enough.  And with genuine alarm at he prospect of work, we stay lazy.  We loaf and procrastinate, or at best work grudgingly and under half steam.  These fears are the termites that ceaselessly devour the foundations of whatever sour of life we try to build.”

He then directed me to read the Daily Reflections for May 12th (Endigar 411).

He told me that he believes those readings would help with what is eating at my gut.  I share this with you as a follow-up to yesterday’s post on answered prayer and to be helpful to anyone else who may be on a similar path.
