Troubled Believer ~

Troubled believer,
oh, anxious one . . .
fear and apprehension
has you on the run.

Worried about the past,
unsure of the future
the insecurities of life
you still feed and nurture.

Burdened believer,
oh, fretful one . . .
the impacts of your choices
cannot be undone.

Frustrations about today,
not sure the way to go
from your past decisions
still being tossed to and fro.

Troubled believer,
take your burdens to the cross
then in the pit of regret . . .
you will not get lost!

Micah 7:19

He will turn again,
he will have compassion
upon us; he will subdue our
iniquities; and thou wilt cast
all their sins into
the depths of the sea.

Isaiah 43:18-19

Remember ye not the former things,
neither consider the things of old.

Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it?
I will even make a way in the
wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

Water’s Troubling ~

I’ve been through water’s troubling,
in the turbulence of my mind
I’ve been tossed and shaken
by thoughts of every kind.

I’ve been blown all around,
in this whirlwind called life . . .
I’ve been in many storms
leaving me full of strife.

I’ve been through tumultuous times,
that were lengthy and prolonged
I’ve been through mind twisters
where anxious thoughts spawned.

I’ve been in deep dark waters,
with no sure way to get out
I’ve been in Satan’s cesspool
filled with dread, fear and doubt.

I’ve been through water’s troubling,
of every type and every kind . . .
but, Jesus has been the bridge
guarding my heart and mind!

Philippians 4:7

“And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,

I Can’t Control Tomorrow ~

I can’t control tomorrow,
I can barely do today . . .
that is why I give to Jesus
my cares all through the day.

For I need to be prudent,
with every given hour
so my mind can be filled
with His strength and power.

I can’t worry about tomorrow,
today has enough of its own
therefore I won’t let anxiety
in my thoughts make a home.

For I need to be cautious,
with what I let in my head
for God’s Word reassures me . . .
there’s nothing for me to dread.

I can’t control the evil,
nor the wicked things out there
but, I can control my thoughts
by being in constant prayer!

Matthew 6:34

Take therefore no thought
for the morrow: for the morrow
shall take thought for the things
of itself. Sufficient unto the day
is the evil thereof.

Soaking Up All Of God’s Peace ~

Sometimes I want to stand,
on top of the highest hill
raise my hands to the Lord
tell Him how I really feel.

I want to shout my love out,
hear His echo back at me
I want to close my eyes tight
hoping His glory I might see.

Sometimes I want to sit,
on the tallest mountain top
sing my praises to the Lord
and never let them stop.

I want to shower on Him,
my heartfelt gratitude
I want Him to see in me
for Him a thankful attitude.

Sometimes I just want to stand,
soak up all of God’s peace . . .
I want to raise my hands up high
and my praise to Him release!

Let my mouth be filled

Things Concerning Me ~

There are many things,
that concern me . . .
including things I can
and those I can’t see.

But, in God’s hands,
I leave them all to be
for I know He is working
something good in me.

There are a lot of things,
on my mind weighing . . .
and they get heavier
when I am not praying.

So for all and everything,
that to me is burdensome
I pray so that I may
all these things overcome.

There are many things,
I wish didn’t have to be
but, I know that God is . . .
perfecting faith in me!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 138.8

The Lord will perfect that which
concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord,

The Thunderbolts of Fear ~

The thunderbolt of fear,
is frightening and horrifying
as it releases its dread
with shocks of panic terrifying.

It freezes and it seizes,
our feet right to the floor
as soon as we begin to hear
its rumbling, cracking roar.

It moves so ever quickly,
through our worried minds
as it begins to settles in
our weaknesses it finds.

Fears jolting booming,
is felt deep in the heart
until a resounding dread
in our soul beings to start.

But, fear can be conquered,
when at first you hear its clap
if you take your worries . . .
and lay them in God’s lap!

Fear Not My Child ~

Fear not My child,
for I’m always with you
do not be afraid . . .
I’ll help get you through.

Fear not My child,
for I am your Savior
do not be alarmed . . .
for you have My favor.

Fear not My child,
for I will not forsake thee
do not be troubled . . .
for I still can calm the sea.

Fear not My child,
for you’re safe in My hand
do not be frightened . . .
I have for you a plan.

Fear not My child,
for My goodness never fails
do not be anxious . . .
for My mercy never pales!

Jesus knows what’s going on,
in your life right now . . .

Jesus, knows that you need,
answers to your prayers
He knows you are burdened
by the weight of your cares.

But, you must give to Him,
all of your desperation
so He can set you free . . .
from your trepidation.

for even the sparrows He feeds!

When Troubles Come ~

When troubles arrive,
as they come for you
go to God first . . .
and ask Him what to do.

For He is our helper,
on whom we can rely
for divine guidance
to use and apply.

When troubles create,
pressure from within
before anxiety and fear
can even set in.

Run into the High Tower,
God will meet you there
to relieve you from
all your worry and care.

When troubles approach
as they pursue you . . .
make sure you ask God
what He’d have you to do!

burdened down with care
when you feel as if . . .
no one for you is there.

is always here for you
to take the worry
weighing down on you.

When you are nervous,
under the dread of fear
when you feel as if . . .
peace will never near.

all the apprehensions
battering down on you.

One Step Forward ~

Sometimes all I can put,
is just one foot forward . . .
for it is all I can do
to keep moving onward.

For I know that I need,
to be diligent and patient
though I am overwhelmed
by today’s environment.

Sometimes I just take,
one step at a time . . .
for it is all I can make
as I see evil on the climb.

For I know I must be,
willing to wait and see
so that fear’s fingers
can’t seize a hold on me.

Sometimes I don’t move,
instead, still I just stand
and say to myself . . .
this is all in God’s hand!

~~~~~~~~

2 Samuel 22:37

Thou hast enlarged
my steps under me;
so that my feet did not slip.

patiently for him: fret not
thyself because of him who
prospereth in his way, because
of the man who bringeth
wicked devices to pass.

the joy in your soul?

for He knows faith needs
the path of His light.

Are you problems,

Seasons Of Fainting ~

Sometimes we go through,
seasons of fainting . . .
when worldly catastrophes
leave us anxiously panting.

For all around us we see,
disorder of every kind
messing with the peace
in our heart and mind.

Sometimes we go through,
seasons of weariness . . .
when earthly calamities
fill us with restlessness.

For every where we turn,
we see the destruction
that evilness brings
when under its seduction.

Sometimes we go through,
seasons of trepidation . . .
but we who believe in Jesus
are free of apprehension!

~~~~~~~~

If thou faint in the day

shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.

It’s No Wonder ~

Life has many troubles,
worries and cares
it’s no wonder we need . . .
Jesus our burdens to bear.

With all the uncertainty,
each day that we face
it’s no wonder we need . . .
more and more of His grace.

Life is full of problems,
highs and lows and downs
it’s no wonder we need . . .
Jesus to keep our heart’s sound.

With all the constant chaos,
the turmoil and the stress
it’s no wonder we need . . .
Jesus ours souls to bless.

Life is but a vapor,
in the big scheme of things
it’s no wonder we need . . .
Jesus and the peace He brings!

Shut The Door On Fear ~

When bad news,
I hear about
I shut the door
on fear and doubt.

Instead I open up,
my trusting heart
so peace into it
God can impart.

Whenever I hear,
things not so great
on my mind
I don’t let them grate.

Instead I open up,
my Bible to read
how to trust God
for all that I need.

When bad news,
I get a whiff of
I fix my heart on . . .
God’s trusting love!

Quick fretting,

your life is in My hand
quit refusing
your days I have planned.

When you’re feeling over burdened,
and the answers are far and few
when your troubles are too heavy
I will carry you ~

When you’re feeling overwhelmed,
and you don’t know what to do
when your worries weigh you down

When your life becomes unraveled,
and your world seems askew

I will carry you ~

When you’re tired and weary,
and you’ve no energy to get through

and yet, yesterday the way you knew
when your journey comes to an end . . .

When Afraid, Trust ~

I put my trust in God,
whenever I’m afraid
for His Word keeps me
from becoming dismayed.

I’m told in my Bible,
that I daily read . . .
that to fear and dread
I should never heed.

So I call upon my Lord,
for Him to be my shield
so to fearfulness
my heart will not yield.

He gives me the faith,
to rise above my cares
as I release onto Him
my fainthearted prayers.

I put my trust in God,
instead of in my fear
by drawing closer to Him
so to keep Him ever near!

Afraid Of The Dark ~

When I was young girl.
of the darkness I was afraid
my bed became for me
from danger a barricade.

I would pull the covers,
up over my head . . .
tremble beneath them
with fear and dread.

I imagined a boogie man,
was coming after me
though my own eyes
never once did it see.

My father would come,
quietly into my room . . .
to calm the anxiety
that over me loomed.

His words of assurance,
there is nothing to fear
reverberated right into
my frightened young ear.

Now that I am much older,
by man’s evilness I’m dismayed
but, now it’s God my Father . . .
telling me not to be afraid!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 1:29-32

Being filled with all
unrighteousness, fornication,
wickedness, covetousness,
maliciousness; full of envy,
murder, debate, deceit,
malignity; whisperers,

Backbiters, haters of God,
despiteful, proud, boasters,
inventors of evil things,
disobedient to parents,

Without understanding,
covenantbreakers, without
natural affection, implacable,
unmerciful:

Joshua 1:9

Have not I commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid, neither be thou
dismayed: for the Lord thy God

Let God Carry You ~

Let God carry you,
through water’s deep
so your hold on Him
you’ll be able to keep.

Let Him take you,
through fires flaming
then in your life
He’ll remain reigning.

Let God lift you,
through the mire murky
so your faith in Him
can stay firmly sturdy.

Let Him bring you,
through the wilderness
then your trust in Him
will become vigorous.

Let God carry you,
through your troubles
then let Him have . . .
all of your struggles!

When thou passest

flame kindle upon thee.

Holding On To The Truth ~

Jesus didn’t say to go in fear,
or to fret throughout our day
He didn’t say to sit and worry
or to follow the anxious way.

He didn’t say to pursue after,
what this world has to offer
He didn’t say to be conformed
or to be a faith scoffer.

He didn’t say He’d leave us,
or that we’d be all alone
He didn’t say He didn’t care
or be left ever on our own.

He didn’t say to be lustful,
or to have eyes like the greedy
He didn’t say we would lack
be deprived, poor, or needy.

But, satan loves to skew,
and turn Jesus’ words around . . .
so we must hold on to the truth
not the lies, he uses to confound!

~~~~~~~~~

John 8:44b

When he speaketh a lie,
he speaketh of his own:
for he is a liar,
and the father of it.”

Heavy On My Mind ~

When my cares,
on me weigh . . .
that’s when to God
I kneel and pray.

For when they stay,
heavy on my mind
there is no peace
that I can find.

When my worries,
creep into my life
that’s when I cast
onto Jesus my strife.

For when they linger,
in my thoughts
they leave me weary
and oh, so fraught.

When my concerns,
weigh me down
I turn to God
for a heart sound.

For I know no other,
thing for me to do
but cast my cares . . .
Lord onto You!

Flighty Sparrow ~

Flighty sparrow,
flitting all about
why do you fly
on wings of doubt?

Don’t you know,
God loves you
with a love . . .
steadfast and true?

Flighty sparrow,
head in the clouds
why do you follow
ungodly crowds?

Don’t you believe,
God values you
how much He cares
about all you do?

Flighty sparrows,
flitting there and here
need God to ease . . .

Worry Ends ~

Worry ends,
when faith kicks in
it withdraws
to our trust within.

For when in God,
peace we find
worry can’t play
with our mind.

Fear ceases,
where love exists
doubt dissolves
where hope persists.

For when in Jesus,
our faith we place
our fears will flee
in the sight of grace.

Worry and fear,
are forced out
when to the Lord
we give our doubt!

I sought the Lord,

Lessons Of The Seas ~

On the sea of doubt,
I have learned to be
fearless as the waves
come crashing over me.

For, I know to be strong,
even when I’m frightened
my grip on Jesus . . .
must remain tightened.

On the sea of worry,
I have learned to be
not so overwhelmed
by what I cannot see.

For, I know to be brave,
even when I’m terrified
my eyes on Jesus . . .
musn’t be cast aside.

The lessons of the seas,
of worry and doubt . . .
have taught how to shut
fear and apprehension out!

Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and of a good courage,

White-Knuckled Faith ~

White-knuckled faith,
holds on tightly to fear
has a hard time . . .
getting trust into gear.

It becomes panicky,
when danger is met
rather having peace
it knows only how to fret.

White-knuckled faith,
struggles often with hope
has a hard time . . .
knowing just how to cope.

It’s filled with the dread,
that scares and terrifies
over every concern
it panics and agonizes.

White-knuckled faith,
can be only cured
if into fear’s snare. . .
it stops being lured!

The fear of man bringeth a snare:
but whoso putteth his trust in
the Lord shall be safe.

Anxiety’s Trap ~

I felt the trap,
of anxiety
set a snare
on my sanity.

The conditions,
were just ripe
that at my heart
it took a swipe.

I took the bait,
ran away with it
then fell into
a nervous snit.

It took some time,
for me to see
this isn’t where
God wants me.

So I sent my own trap,
for anxiety . . .
now with God’s love
fear had no priority!

There is no fear in love;
