Christians and Flower Essences: Fear of the Unknown | Redemptive Postures Series

One thing Christian culture tends to do horribly well is being afraid of the unknown. It seems that anything natural health or quantum physics that doesn't make sense to your average evangelical often gets labeled New Age, without any real understanding of what that term means.While I have not really heard any objections to flower essences, I know that the unfamiliar can raise concerns and I want to help you understand instead of fear. Scripture tells us that we have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).So while we do want to be diligent in our research and understanding of alternative health topics (making the unknown known), we don't need to be afraid of anything. It is so sad to think how many good things that God made for our benefit we are missing out on because we are afraid of the unknown.

This may sound difficult, but the benefits are worth the effort, and even the most brown of thumbs can keep some low maintenance house plants alive.

While our intentions were good and we may have had some strong motivation to build these new habits, we've all failed at making real changes.
