10 Ways to Become Fearless When the Future Feels Uncertain

I am sitting here on lockdown during a world pandemic and I can tell you that everything feels very strange and upended at the moment. Looking out the windows across the table from me, you would think that nothing has changed.

The blue summer sky is slightly obscured by puffy white clouds. The trees are blowing in the breeze and flowers add beautiful pops of color.

At this moment I choose to focus on the beauty and serenity of nature and leave my worries behind. I know I will have to choose this frame of mind again and again.

Life as we knew it has been put on hold. Everyone is talking about the “new normal”. No one knows exactly what that means or how we are going to achieve it.

There is One that does know our future. He cares about every little detail of our lives, and He will keep His promises to those who love Him.

Would you like to know Him? I invite you to watch the FREE GIFT video above.

I hope these 10 ways to become fearless when the future feels uncertain will be helpful to you today. We are all in this together!

1. Remember that the future is always uncertain.

Remember that you have been through bad times before and that you have come out on the other side. When we are walking through deep and muddy waters, it is easy for our vision to become clouded with doubt and despair. We long to know that we have a bright future, but it’s so easy to get caught up in the downward spiral of what ifs. What ifs equal fear.

When I was growing up we didn’t have a word for the what ifs. My dad tried to help me so much, and he did. He told me I was. going to what if myself to death. I was often paralyzed when it came to making decisions.

What if I go to the game with my friends and we die in an accident? What if I go on a trip and something happens to my family while I’m gone? What if I take this new job and hate it?

What are your what ifs?

Grace Conquers Fear During Uncertain Times

My parents taught me so much about the grace of God. When I was in a what ifs spiral, my dad would talk to me about the frailty of being human. How it is ok to make a mistake. How there is grace and always a new beginning. He would tell me to make a decision and go with it.

Just do something. Move forward. You are never stuck. If you don’t like where that choice leads, then you can change course.

It turns out he was right! You are never stuck. Keep on trucking! Fix your eyes on the light at the end of the tunnel. Ask God to help you get there and don’t forget to thank Him when you do. You will get through this!

We all need the encouragement of these 10 ways to become fearless when the future feels uncertain.

How to Overcome Anxiety

We now know that what ifs are a part of anxiety. When I was younger we dealt with such things quietly and as best we could. These days we have many treatments and methods to combat it. Anxiety loves to rare it’s ugly her when we least expect it.

If you are suffering from anxiety, you are not alone. Please see your doctor or mental health expert for diagnosis. Speak to a trusted Christian counselor who can help you overcome anxiety through treatment and faith in God.

God will meet you right where you are. Right now in this moment.

Did you know that God understands that humans are prone to being afraid of the unknown?

Did you know that He created you and formed you in your mother’s womb?

Did you know that He has a plan for your life that can begin when you ask Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior?

13 For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand—
    when I awake, I am still with you.

Psalm 139:13-18

16 For God so. loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but. to. save the world through Him.

John 3:16-17

The great news is that God knows our fears and He understands our humanity.

Fear is common to all of us, albeit some of us battle it more than others. Fear can lead to anxiety, and you can read more about that here.

The great news is that God knows our fears and He understands our humanity. In fact, God himself became fully human in the form of Jesus Christ, His only Son. He endured every temptation known to man, but He never sinned! Not once!

At the same time He was fully human, He was fully God. Wrap your head around that one! God in human form who came to save us from our sins and deliver us from the fear that holds us captive.

2. Express your gratitude for the blessings of this day.

A thankful heart makes everything look brighter and can increase happiness significantly.

A friend of mine once gave me some great advice. This friend happens to be a mental health expert and she also has great faith in God.

When I was going through an anxious time in my life, she challenged me to smile the moment I wake up in the morning.

It works!! Try it!

Even a fake smile will send your brain the message that you are happy and it will comply by releasing endorphins.

Then she asked me to tell God four things that I am thankful for, followed by reading or reciting my favorite Bible verses.

I can tell you that it works.

I continue this practice every morning and have made a smile my “resting face” throughout each day.

Not only does that lift my spirits, it brings happiness to those around me. Unless they want to remain grumpy and it annoys them haha.

This is one is my favorite of these 10 ways to become fearless when the future feels uncertain. A grateful heart is a weapon against fear and anxiety. All is well.

3. If you have hit rock bottom the only place to go is up!

You may need help rebuilding, but you can do it!

Sometimes life can be hard and some things that can come your way will cause great pain and sorrow.

5. This will be something you tell your grandchildren about someday.

For example, during this COVID 19 stressful period, we have been on total lockdown. We buy groceries online.

Amazon has worn a pathway to our house. We see our family on virtual calls. We connect with our work partners virtually from our home office.

It has been 4 months since we have had face to face contact with anyone outside of our home. COVID cases are soaring. Unemployment is going up. I have lost my job of 30 years and find myself unemployed like millions of other people.

I have friends and family members who can’t pay their bills because businesses are failing. People are feeling pretty fearful.

We all need the encouragement of these 10 ways to become fearless when the future feels uncertain.

Many people have lost loved ones during a time that restricts them from being with their hospitalized loved ones.

Funerals and weddings have been postponed or attended by very small groups. Many people are grieving in isolation.

The future feels uncertain. The present feels surreal.

People are anxious and hiding out, or they are pretending that everything is normal and going everywhere, potentially spreading the virus.

We are all dealing with this “new normal” the best we can. Politics, social issues and relational issues are heated.

Suddenly the whole world has been stopped by a virus. It’s global. No one is unaffected. And yet, there is hope.

Hope Helps You Overcome Fear

We know this because God keeps his word. We know this because history tells us many stories of bad things followed by better days.

Whatever is going on in your life that has you waylaid, please know that it will pass.

If you will place your trust in God, He will bring you through this dark valley. There are better days ahead.

You will look back on this time and talk about it. You may tell your grandchildren about it.

This difficult time can become an opportunity for you to turn your life around. Leave the past behind and press on toward a better future. All by the beautiful grace of our loving God.

I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Jesus Christ.

Philippians 3:14

We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not disparing.

2 Corinthians 4:8

Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal, but things which are to seen are eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

6. This could be your wake up call to move forward in your life.

Take this time to become the best version of yourself.

Think about what matters the most to you. What gives you energy and excitement? How can you love yourself more so that you can love others the same way?

Where can you cut back so that you have more time for the things that bring meaning and purpose to your life?

Life is such a beautiful gift. Don’t waste another day. Seek to know God through His son Jesus Christ! A relationship with God changes everything!

7. Try something new!

Maybe this is the time to go a new direction. You aren’t stuck! Maybe it’s time to take a chance and step our of your comfort zone.

Whether it’s a new job, choosing a more positive attitude, letting go of past hurts, taking up a new hobby or whatever seems fun and exciting to you, make a change that propels you on to a better life!

You can improve your circumstances with the right attitude and hard work!

We all need the encouragement of these 10 ways to become fearless when the future feels uncertain.

8. Connect with friends and family.

Everyone needs a support system. Let the ones who love you know you need help and encouragement.

Take some time to take care of yourself body, mind, and spirit.

Know that this will end and there is hope for your future! Everything comes to an end. Even pandemics or whatever else you are going through.

There will be a brighter tomorrow and there is hope for you!
