Conquering Fears

From 1 John 4:17-19:  “Love has been perfected among us in this:  that we may have boldness on the day of judgment, because as He is, so are we in this world.  There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear; for fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not reached perfection in love.  We love because he first loved us.”

Bringing anxiety

Life’s darkness encroaches

Where can we always turn?

Father’s light approaches

 

Bitten by sinful grief

Burdened at life’s abyss

Time to admit these fears

Seeking truth to dismiss

 

Frightened by life’s trials

Being honest with self

True feelings now exposed

Finding Bible on shelf

 

Coming to our Father

Reaching out to His hand

Time now spent in prayer

God’s Word faithfully stands

 

God’s hand vanquishes fears

Lasting comfort and peace

Heavenly rod and staff

Salvation, life’s new lease

 

Father’s infinite love

Grace casting out these fears

Supportive hand and Word

Conquering fear-filled tears

From the words of American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  “When fear begins to sink in, I pray harder, study longer, and read my Bible more closely.  God wants to cast out the fear and doubt in your life.”
