Being Afraid

Perfect love casts away all fear
Then why am I afraid?
Fear grips my soul
Fear of the unknown
Fear of pain
Fear of a God whoís silent
Where will this path lead?
I donít like being afraid
Darkness closes in
Shrouds my mind
Fear robs me of sunshine
When I see the clouds
Will it take my sunshine away?
I have opened myself
Now here I am
Fear of being left
I donít want to be afraid
I want to be happy without fear
Myself without anger
The man I am supposed to be
How can I be that?
Why does it hurt?
Canít I just be me?
I close my eyes and see
The place I want to be
Nothing separates me from God
He still loves me
Yet I am afraid
Afraid to be me
Needing a whisper
Godís Will for me
Assurance Heís there
Security in His care for me
Me me me
Seems thatís all I say
Selfish indeed
Why hide it from me?
Wondering where Iím going
Knowing where Iíve been
Searching for a better tomorrow
Running from the fear within
Only one problem
I canít run from me
I donít like being afraid

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