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!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 56:3 

What time I am afraid,
I will trust in thee.

When You Think You Can’t ~

When you think you can’t,
remember God can . . .
when you don’t know the way
remember God has a plan.

When you think it’s all but over,
remember God just began
when you are afraid and fearful . . .
remember God’s wingspan.

When you think it’s to hard,
remember God does the impossible
when you think it’s hopeless
remember God is unstoppable.

When you think you’ve had enough,
remember God is not done
when you think you’re all alone
remember the love of His Son.

When you think you can’t do it,
remember God can do . . .
when you think it’s too difficult
remember God will strengthen you!

Luke 1:37

For with God nothing
shall be impossible.

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 . . .
all their earthy fear!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 10:31

Fear not, therefore;
you are of more value
than many sparrows.

On The Edge of Despair ~

 

I have been on the edge,
of complete, utter despair
I’ve looked over the ledge
not knowing what was there.

I’ve felt the bitter cold,
wrap me in it’s fearful grip
but, God had on me a hold
making sure I wouldn’t slip.

I have been to the threshold,
of total desperation
I’ve felt darkness enfold me
with fear and trepidation.

I’ve sensed the loom of doom,
engulf me with pure terror
but, God in the grasp of gloom
quelled my state of horror.

I have been on the edge,
of utter hopelessness
but, as I was on the ledge . . .
Jesus healed my brokenness!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4.8-10

We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed;
we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken;
cast down, but not destroyed;

Always bearing about in the body
the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life also of Jesus might
be made manifest in our body.

Psalm 34:17-19

The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth,
and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

The Lord is nigh unto them that are
of a broken heart; and saveth such
as be of a contrite spirit.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous:
but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

Good Morning Quote ~07.21.19~


Feet Like That Of A Deer ~

Oh, to have feet,
like that of a deer
I’d be able to move
without having fear.

I could then scale,
whatever the height
for I would have . . .
God’s power and might.

Oh, to have feet,
like that of a doe
I would not dread
I would just go.

I could then climb,
whatever the distance
for I’d have God’s strength
when met with resistance.

Oh, to have feet,
willing to in God trust
my legs would be . . .
inclined to adjust!

~~~~~~~~~

Habakkuk 3:19

“The Lord God is my strength,
and he will make my feet
like hinds’ feet, and he
will make me to walk upon
mine high places.”

Let Trust Rule ~

If trust is to rule,
our mind and heart
then from God
we mustn’t depart.

For we know for us,
He has only the best
and on this truth
our souls can rest.

If trust is to dispel,
our fears and doubts
then the Word of God
we mustn’t shut out.

For in His Word,
we see all He is able
to keep our trust in Him
strong and stable.

When trust becomes,
to God our link . . .
into dread and despair
we will not sink!

~~~~~~

Psalm 112:7

“He shall not be
afraid of evil tidings:

his heart is fixed,
trusting in the Lord.”
