Fear impacts life purpose. Once fear has you in it's grasp it blocks creativity, productivity, and relationships. So how can we take this next step and turn our fears into courage:
- Make a list of all the things you fear about living out God's purposes for your life. Are you afraid you will fall short of God's intentions? Are you afraid of what people will think? No matter what the fears write them - then pray over the list and offer your fears to God.
- Ask yourself two questions, How does fear keep me focused on myself? and What has fear stolen from me?"
- Sometimes the best way to handle fear is to "just do it" just do that first speech, teach that first bible study,
- Feed your courage with the word of God...find scripture on fear and write it on an index card - read them, meditate on them.
