A businessman once constructed a 'Worry Chart' to keep a record of his fears. He discovered that 40 percent of his worries involved things that probably wouldn't happen, 30 percent involved past decisions that he couldn't unmake, 12 percent regarded other people's criticisms, and 10 percent involved his health. He concluded that only 8 percent of his worries were really legitimate (if there is such a thing) that is, things he could actually do something about.
So how do we overcome our fears? How do we rid ourselves of worry and anxiety, most of which is unfounded anyway. The Bible says that perfect love cast out all fear. So maybe we should focus on God's love, not on our fear."
