This verse means a lot to me and right now it describes what I'm feeling and what I need to do.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall guide your paths." Proverbs 3:5&6 (NKJV)
If I give God all that I have in my heart He wont turn me away and tell me that He doesn't want what I offer. He tells us to "Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4 (NKJV) If He tells me my desires will be mine, what do I have to worry about then? He's got it all under control! It's my turn to give it to God and wait for Him to do the rest.
On The Mindset

My biggest fear is failure. Failure to achieve, failure to accomplish, failure to triumph, failure to succeed. I fear the unknown. Not because of its possible endings, but because of the possibility that I might not be able to conquer the unknown. Yet here I am, alive and breathing, in my right state of mind, fulfilling my destiny, and pursuing a legacy. How do I do it amidst my fear? It’s simple…I overcome fear.
In order to overcome fear I had to first realize where it came from. Timothy said “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind”. I think fear is not addressed properly these days because we don’t talk about where it originates. Fear is not something that is obsolete. It’s a feeling that hangs around and lurks. Fear is a genuine state of mind; it’s just not a Godly state of mind. Once I recognized that fear didn’t come from God, it raised the question who does fear come from? The next time you are fearful of something think about where it came from and remember the Lord says “Fear not”. In fact he says it 365 times in the bible, see the coincidence?
Another thing I do to overcome fear is, I fight Fear with Fire. What do I mean by that? My fear of having a fear of anything is what helps me overcome. I despise fear, and like I mentioned earlier I know fear is not of God so my fear of fear keeps me from fearing the things I use to fear. Instead I use my fear to fight fear completely.
