The Door To His Abundance

Hope of abundance
Knocks gently at my door.
Yet, fearing only loss
Blocks my expecting more.

Perceiving only loss,
In the subtleness of defeat,
Deceit remains buried deep,
And life feels incomplete.

The gentle knock that beckons,
Is awareness of His good,
The lie that shouts defeat,
Is His plan misunderstood.

Should I this, should I that,
My doubts inquire why.
Worried and most fretful,
I can't hear God's reply.

When struggling with anxiety,
I guard my broken heart.
Afraid to grieve, I'm bound,
Doomed right from the start.

When, dear Lord I daily pray
Will solace ever come.
Apathy buried deep inside,
Leaves me feeling numb.

He says to count the cost
Of loving with His desire,
Yet fighting His inevitable,
I'm caught in sin's grave mire.

Digging deep to touch despair,
Is finding God inside.
Opening my heart's door
To parts I want to hide.

What grave sin am I afraid
Has brought such depth of loss,
God alone knows what I hide,
And He's nailed it to His cross.

Fearing loss, yet sharing sorrow,
Is His plan to knowing Him.
By receiving mighty renewal,
Humbly surrendering sin.

If afraid to learn obedience
By the things I am to suffer,
Sin may keep me from my pain,
But blocks Him as my buffer.

Blocking pain when grieving loss,
Is fear to live through Him,
Unaware how He so longs
To love me through my sin.

When I'm weak, then I'm strong,
As I open my heart to Him,
Abundance silences Satan's lie,
And He's richly alive within.
