04 Sep Overcoming Fear
As I write this week’s blog I am on my way to school and it’s my second day back. It’s been the strangest ever start to the school year and I expect some of you might be feeling the same thing. I wonder if perhaps you are feeling more anxious than normal about returning to school after such a long time at home.
It’s just as well then that our blog is all about overcoming fear and anxiety. The bible is full of promises to us from God about how He is with us even in the most difficult of times and will never leave us.
It’s time to face your fears!
Below are some links and verses from the Bible that address issues of fear. Be encouraged. God’s word is true and is there to help us!
Wow-what a verse! If we have perfect love then it gets rid of fear. I don’t quite get the full implications of this truth, but I do understand that if we live our lives knowing how much God loves us (spend time with him to find out how much!) then we are less likely to be fearful.
This is another great verse! The world is full of people who are anxious but God tells us not to be. But He doesn’t just leave us to get on with it, He tells us not to worry by bringing all our fears and concerns to Him in prayer. It doesn’t matter how trivial it might seem, if it matters to you, it matters to God. You’re his kid remember!
The Key to Overcoming Anxiety for Youth
Another great verse for you:
My Testimony: Fear And Anxiety
Song of the Blog is You Say by Lauren Daigle. I’ve chosen this because fear is usually rooted in lies we believe about ourselves, others or our situation. This song reminds me exactly how God sees us and what he has to say!
‘You say I am strong when I think I am weak’
