Season of Fear

There is no fear in the LORD, but yet we in our flesh still struggle with this very real and exceedingly intense feeling that can overwhelm and drown us if we are not cautious.  Fear comes and we must, as Christians, face it head on and see it for what it is….a ploy by Satan to deter us from the beauty and peace that is found in God and His promises for us!  Take a second to think about what fears are holding you back from receiving the promises of God.  Is it fear of failure?  Fear of rejection?  Fear of losing earthly possessions like your home or your car?  Fear of being alone?  Fear of the unknown?  What fear is driving you away from the arms of God?  Take that fear, pray, give it to God and let Him handle it for He is bigger and promises us rest.  Once He takes hold of it, then we are free to grow and mature in our walk with Him.

Blessings to you all and may the peace of God which surpasses all understanding guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)

The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.
~ Psalm 85:11 ~

Season of Fear

Flurries of fear
Spinning
Dancing

Whirling in the chaos
Drifting
Gliding

Falling to the ground
Settling
Captivating

Melting under the Son
Slipping
Fading

Watering new life
Blooming
Growing

Springing forth from God
Maturing
Beautifying

Amazing grace abounds
Satisfying
Fulfilling

Sails of My Soul

That we should no longer be like infants,
Tossed to and fro and carried about on every wind of doctrine,
By the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,
But speaking truth in love may grow up into him who is the head, Christ.
~ Ephesians 4:14-15 ~

Sunset

Sails of My Soul

Lead me over uncharted waters
Steady my course as I go
Let loose the ropes of burden
Prepare the masts of my heart
Lower the boom of inspiration
Hoist the sails of my soul
Focus my mind on the horizon
Carry me on the wings of the wind
Lead me not into the abyss
Guide me on gentle waters
Prepare me for the storms
Shelter me from the crashing waves
Let me not go adrift
Nor lose my bearings at sea
Be my lighthouse in the darkness
Be my compass when I wander
Keep me anchored to you O Lord
