I can definitely say that working with Minister Shareece Hunter was such a blessing. She has inspired me, encouraged me, prayed over me, and touched me with her powerful words. We have discussed many things but the number one thing that we have discussed is overcoming fear. As she says it herself fear is of the enemy and should not have any control of our hearts, minds, or soul. Fear is a very big topic that Minister Shareece has accomplished and can really touch people in her words of overcoming it. Growing up I have always been afraid to take risks or even to talk to other individuals about any problem that goes through my mind. In the household that I was raised in, I was not allowed to share any of my problems with anyone no matter who they are and that pretty much made me keep every problem that I had bottled up which made everything worse. Because of this in 2012 I was diagnosed with panic disorder. I would always become afraid to speak up for myself and just to speak about anything really. As I got older I was becoming more afraid of life that I let the power of fear control my mind, my heart, and my soul. Because of that in 2016, I was diagnosed with a generalized anxiety disorder and moderate to severe depression (which means that I am suicidal). Still, I would get through life being afraid to do anything. As I got older, I was afraid to speak to people at school, at church, at work, and even sometimes with my roommate. This led for me to start overthinking and making things worst as the years go by. This year 2020, I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. Would you believe that I am only 24 years old? I soon then realized that the enemy will not win, I will overcome the spirit of fear and that I knew the right person to talk to.
Minister Shareece and I had a conversation after our weekly virtual group call and it definitely blessed me. She started giving me devotionals, different scriptures, and affirmations to work on when it comes to overcoming the spirit of fear. She also shared her story about how she overcame the fear which made me feel a lot better. She told me that what I was going through is normal and that I am never alone. She explained to me that this is what the enemy wants is to steal, kill, and destroy you whether it is physically or mentally. However, when you trust in the word of God and surrender all to him and give 110% of everything from you and to him, well there is no such thing as fear. Minister Shareece gave me beneficial things to do to overcome fear and I have days that I totally want to give up and be afraid, but thanks to Minister Shareece, she has reminded me that because I believe in the power of God, there is no such thing as fear inside of me.
