Juice of stress

When we feel fear there is energy building up inside the body. I call this the juice of fear. Where that energy juice goes is partially up to you and up to the context. If you leave it to the context you have the unholy trinity, you have fight, aggression attack and the emotion of anger. You have flight, which you could express in terms of the general concept of fear running away, escape to where we don’t know, bars are full of people escaping. Are you a attacker or retreater? There is one other possibility to not engage but to disengage and hide, we say ‘I don’t want to think about it’, freezing and hiding from the danger. But we are capable of more, we can face fear by taking it head on by acknowledging the presence of God and thus relieving our body of stress. Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church
