What I Fear

Something that I have experienced in my life a lot is fear. It is one of the most frequent feelings I have. Here is a list of just the few things I fear about.....

I fear that....
People won't like me for who I am
Being accepted
I won't be successful at what I do
I will say the wrong thing
I will make a mistake
I am not good enough for others
I won't know what to say and will act dumb
I will never have a boyfriend
Of speaking in large groups
Going away to college

Those are just a few that I fear. But even though there aren't a whole lot of things I fear- there is a great amount in each one of those!
We all have fears of something in our life. It is hard to overcome those fears and know that God is with us when we experience them.

But one way to overcome our fears is to....
1. Trust that God will be with us
2. Don't let others discourage you
3. Take a step in faith even though it is hard or may be scary
4. Try hard and be brave until the end
5. Overcome your fear!

An photo someone shared with me that was so encouraging and really showed me what level I am at is this image below. I hope that it shows you what level you are at in your life. And it will make you want to try harder.


Proverbs 29:25-
The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever leans on, trusts in, and puts his confidence in the Lord is safe and set on high.

I read that verse in my devotions the other night and thought that was so encouraging! :)
