Fear Not

You can smell it, the fear all around us,
The future in uncertain hands,
Earthquakes and disasters, volcanoes and more,
What's happ'ning within our own lands?

We've failed to seek God, His altar ignored,
Just where does security lie?
Just where do we go when we feel overwhelmed
And feel our own burdens piled high?

Depression is rampant and hearts overcome,
We feel the fear building inside.
If Jesus were here just what would He say,
The One who e'en orders the tide?

"My peace I have given, I'm still in control,
The future is still in My hands.
You've nothing to fear when you focus on Me,
My mercy and grace like the sands.

I'm holding you closely, I know your heart's needs,
Your future I've already planned.
I've told you what's coming, your times in My hand,
'Fear not' is My constant command.

Look up when you feel your world shaking,
For I am a constant for you,
Your future in heaven I've already prepared,
Just do what I tell you to do.

'Fear not'; there's a reason I say this,
Your world is within My control.
Your needs I've provided, your future is sure,
All worries on Me you must roll.

The past is the proof I am able,
My arms hold you next to My heart.
I will not desert you no matter what comes,
For You've had My love from the start."

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Great poem, Carol. We are truly seeing prophecy fulfilled and the soon catching away of the church (body of Christ). We as believer have no reason to fear, but we do 'feel' for those caught up in the disasters that did not know Jesus. We just need to pray and believe HIM, trust HIM...The world system is crumbling, but the CHURCH (body of believers) are growing stronger. GOD BLESS YOU and keep writing.

Wonderful. Why do we fear when we have God's promises and He is faithful. He does have great plans for us.

Fear Not is going to be one of my favorite poems, I think! I just did a book review on the probability of the world ending in 2012 so this poem is just what I needed to read! Isn't it wonderful knowing that He has everything in control?

Beautiful! Thanks Carol.

Ah, yes, "The future is still in My hands," what then do we have to fear but fear itself. Love this message while everything around us is shaken we stand solid in our trust for the Lord, and His soon return. God Bless you my friend. . . Debby
