WORD OF THE WEEK
Four Steps to Overcoming Fear  Psalm 118:6

First, be willing to take a risk. Yes, you might be hurt or embarrassed - so what? To overcome insecurity and gain confidence you must allow yourself the freedom to take a chance. Start writing that book, take those music lessons, stand up and speak at the meeting! Feel the fear and do it anyway! ĎFear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safeí (Proverbs 29:25 NIV 2011 Edition). Second, learn to laugh at yourself. Get over your obsessive need for approval and acceptance and learn to laugh at your mistakes. Weíre all human; stop taking yourself so seriously! When you make a mistake, be the first to see the funny side, and youíll find people more supportive than you think. Third, start thinking realistically. Itís time to drop the security blanket and realise itís not all about you. You are not the centre of the universe, and your little faux pas donít mean that much in the bigger scheme of things. Besides, mistakes are often better teachers than success. Fourth, reward yourself for little victories. When you complete a project, reward yourself. When you take advice or correction without retaliating, reward yourself. Often the people we lash out at, are those trying the hardest to help us. Get used to the idea that youíre valuable, talented, and skilled, and your worth in Godís eyes is inestimable. Stop scrutinising yourself through distorted lenses and start seeing yourself with 20/20 vision. Once you can do that, your fears will be replaced by confidence in yourself and in your future.
