Fear of flying!

Hi my name is Tysa I suffer from depression and social anixety and it's hindering my walk with the Lord. I have a hard time fellowshiping in church because of this sudden nervesness that overtakes me. I want to build healthy relationships and maintain them. I know neg thinking and insecurity is a be part of the problem. I'm tired of retreating. I'm tired of giving up on God because I can't endure my hardship. I'm tired of running . I have to face my fears. Anybody have any scripts I could speak over my situation? Or advice?

Hi Tysa,

How brave and honest of you to write this. 

Matthew 5

 3"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
      for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
 4Blessed are those who mourn,
      for they will be comforted.
 5Blessed are the meek,
      for they will inherit the earth.
 6Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
      for they will be filled.

Tysa, have you considered counseling?  The fears you mention seem like things that have plagued you for some time.  Also meeting with a pastor or an older woman in the church seems wise.  I am a pastor here in Portland, Oregon and meet with women often who experience these kind of things, and have experienced some of these myself over the years. The Lord is stronger than any power that plagues you.  But without care from other women and walking in relationship with one another - fear often consumes us. 

Will pray for you tonight.  ~Karen
