I'm Soooo Scared... I COULD BUST!
How many of you have ever been afraid of anything?   I'm really scared of escalators!
I know it's funny.. but I am.   How many of you have ever been afraid to witness to someone or
stand up for what's right at school?   Me too. 
Maybe you're  afraid, for example that you're going to get bad grades on your test or maybe you're afraid someone in your family is going to die.  There are so many things that could make us afraid.  Can you tell me what makes you afraid? 
Well When we are scared, we are kind of like this balloon (Hold up pre-blown up balloon, maybe from earlier game) And this flame( light candle)
Now watch carefully.
 (Hold the balloon to the candle) POP!!!   
Now we may not really Pop!  like this balloon did ...this is an example of how fear makes us act and feel.  You may feel like not doing what is hard or quitting.  You may feel like crying or getting angry.   Life is very hard when we  try to carry all our fears around with us.    So what do we do when we are afraid?
   The Bible says in Psalms 27:1
 "The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? 
The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?' 
 So let's see what happens...
If we let God take all the heat out of our fear. (Hold up balloon with cup of water in it) The water in
this balloon represents God. (Shake around so kids can hear and see the water.) So let's say we
are afraid to tell a mean girl at school about Jesus,  but we let God take the fear and we ask him
for strength and  faith.  What will happen?   Let's see ...(Hold candle up to water spot on balloon) (The balloon will
not pop!) He will strengthen us and the fear won't keep us from being strong and courageous. 
So the next time you feel like you are soooo scared that you could just  bust, rely on God.  Give God
the fear and He will strengthen you  and by faith  your efforts will not be a bust.
