Fear

Fear is a great motivator, the problem is it usually motivates us in the wrong direction.
Fear will control our lives if not confronted.
What can help over come fear, faith.
Faith will confront fear and they can not exist together, it is like water and oil, they do not mix. Faith in knowing God will and can take care of you, he knows your circumstances,
he has your best interest at heart.
Let's say you have a fear that your are going to get laid off from your job.
If the boss sends you a letter stating that your job is secure, then the faith in what the boss has written will overcome that fear.
God has sent us a letter that says that he cares for us, and he has our names in the palm of his hands. Believing what God has told us, will help to overcome the fear, and stop the worry.
Take your burdens to the Lord and leave them there.
Trust God
