Don't Be Afraid John 6:50 Acts 18:9 By: Luther M. Cain Ifyou are troubled by fear let me help you. To start, let me assure you that fears can be removed. Fear can destroy you. It can make you feel mis- erable. A number of years ago, one of our late Presidents said, "The only thing we, as a nation, have to fear is fear itself." How true this statement is. When you realize that fear - any fear- can be removed, then comes the task of removing it. This requires self- discipline. This is not easy; nor is it very popular. But you can do it. It is not shameful to say, I have been afraid. Three or four times in my per- sonal life I have experienced fear. Yes, I know what it is to be afraid. But, thanks be to God, I have overcome it. Overcoming fear brings strength• Face it. Don't run from it. In/'act, you can outrun it. Fear causes one to worry, and wor- ry is the product of the mind. And it can be controlled. God loves you. And because He loves you He cares about you. Let God take care of your fears. Faith in God will cancel out your fears. Have you ever sat down and count- ed your blessings? Why don't you try it? Try it and your fears will fly away. Think positive. The 23rd Psalm tells us, "I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me." God has tried to fix things for us so that we need have no tear. Fear comes only to those who do not have complete faith in God. The world is full of people who are miserable because of fear. Fear is often deep-rooted from one's childhood. Perhaps some experience that you have forgotten made a deep impression upon you. As a result you have fear. Wouldn't you like to rid yourself of this fear? Ask God to help you. It is essential that one must seek and get God's forgiveness. He must then for- give himself. Too often we are plagued by the fear of failure. No one wins every time. Wise indeed is the person who learns to profit by his mistakes and failures. Now, let's think for a moment about how we can bring an end to being afraid. One must admit that it is possi- ble to be afraid. One of the sure facts of life is tht there will be problems. Why not face them. We are heirs to trouble. The Bible gives help to those in troubl. "Be of good cheer; I have over- come any problem. Don't let any prob- lem get you down. Trust in the Lord. Don't give up. Ask yourself what is the right thing to do. Then ask God to show you the right thing to do. Pray. Pray. Pray.

Fletcher speaks out on Patton's tax proposal Congressman Ernie Fletcher re- leased the following statement re- garding the Patton Administration's plan for a tax increase on business, family farmer, low income citizens, and daily activities. "Once again, it's not that we tax too little, it's that we spend too much. The budget crisis facing Itucky must be solved where it wascreated, in Frankfort, not on4the Imeks of hardworking Kentuckians. We need fiscal discipline that reduces waste, while ending the political patronage that has fed offour tax dollars for far too many years. It's time to cut polit- • ical paybacks, not raise taxes, and I believe this can be accomplished, while maintaining strong support for education, healthcare, public safety, and other vital services."
