Face Fears

“The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?”

Psalms‬ ‭27:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭23:4‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”

2 Timothy‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

Galatians‬ ‭1:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Joshua‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“There seemed to be endless obstacles preventing me from living with my eyes open, but as I gradually followed up clue after clue it seemed that the root cause of them all was fear.” – Marion Milner

The wisest psychological insight I ever learned: 

Everybody is acting out of their own individual drama.

They aren't thinking about you.
They see you as a minor character in their story.

Perhaps a cameo.

It's a liberating insight.

That voice in your head saying that people are judging you? That's you.

People don't care.
