When times are tough, the Lord is our only security.  

From Matthew 6:25, 31-32:  “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?  Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’  For it is the gentiles who seek all these things, and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.”

Heartbreaking Worry

From Joshua 1:9:  “I hereby command you:  Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Man’s human nature

Wrestling with new fears

Breathing with unease

Darkening frontiers

 

Fear all consuming

Racing with flurry

Suffocating breath

Heartbreaking worry

 

Root of lasting doubt

Distrusting our God

Overlooking grace

Hiding, sin’s facade

 

Strength walks with courage

Turning to God’s Word

Following His law

Trusting faith’s watchword

 

Scripture holding fast

Anchoring with peace

Receiving Lord’s love

Blessing life’s new lease

 

Christ’s moral compass

Shepherding with grace

Walking in His trust

Slowing down life’s race

From the words of American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  “To conquer our fears, we should identify them but then focus instead of God and Scripture.”
