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
is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Living By Faith ~

Living by faith,
and not by sight
can give some us
an awful fright.

But Jesus said,
for us not to be afraid
nor by what we can’t see
to ever be dismayed.

Living by faith,
and not what is seen
is sometimes hard
for us to glean.

But Jesus knew,
what we would face
so He gave to us
strength for the race.

Living by faith,
and not what is observed
is the only way to keep . . .
our assurance preserved!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the assurance
of things hoped for,
the conviction of things
not seen.

Lord, Give My Faith A Backbone ~

Lord, give my faith a backbone,
robust, sturdy and strong
give my spirit the braveness
to last my whole life long.

Lord, help me not to be,
cowardly and spineless
so for You I can be . . .
courageous and fearless.

Lord, give my trust a framework,
rugged, durable and resilient
give my spirit the boldness
to go for You the distant.

Lord, help me not to be,
fainthearted and gutless
so for You I can be . . .
a light for Your justness.

Lord, give me a backbone,
make my faith seamless
so that my trust in You
can remain effortless!

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 is with thee
whithersoever thou goest.

Sticky Note From God~ 06.11.19~


He Calms the Storms ~

He calms the storms,
the waves He can hush
so those in distress
into His arms will rush.

He redirects the wind,
tells it where to go
so those fearful
His peace may know.

He stops the roar,
of an angry sea
so those hopeless
His power can see.

He silences the clap,
in the thunder
so those frightened
can see His wonder.

He answers the cries,
of those afraid . . .
so they’ll learn in Him
not to be dismayed!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 107:29

“He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof are still.”

1 Chronicles 22:13

“be strong,
and of good courage;
dread not,
nor be dismayed.”

Fearless ~

I once was bound,
knotted up with fear
but then Jesus came
and drew me near.

He took my thoughts,
filled them with hope
became the Anchor
at the end of my rope.

I once was chained,
coupled with dread
but then Jesus came
right into my head.

He took my mind,
filled it with peace
said unto Him
my fears to release.

I once was bound,
but, now I’m fearless
for, Jesus released in me
His calming stillness!

~~~~~~

Matthew 14:26-27

“And when the disciples
saw him walking on the sea,
they were troubled, saying,
It is a spirit; and they
cried out for fear.

But straightway Jesus
spake unto them, saying,
Be of good cheer;
it is I; be not afraid.”
