This is a post I had on my website. I have transferred it to our new blogger account. Please check back soon for another post.
· “Recognize our emotions. We need to acknowledge them. Not ignore them.”o I feel afraid. I feel anxious. I feel insufficient.
· “Express our emotions to God.”o Lord, I’m afraid of failing myself, my family, my friends, my peers, and especially You. I feel insufficient for the task at hand, and I don’t want to mess things up. Other people are counting on me to get this right. If I don’t succeed, neither will they.
· “Evaluate what our emotions are telling us about what we are believing.”o I’m inadequate.o God will desert me.o I’ll be a failure and become a fool in other people’s eyes.
· “Decide to replace our thinking and behavior with God’s Truth.”o “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 NIVo The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8 NIVo 7. “Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go. 8.”This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.” Joshua 1:7-8 NIV
