In the back of my mind I hold a fear,
In the back of my mind I have a doubt,
In the back of my mind there is insecurity,
but there is one thing and one thing only
that moves me past all these things,
and thatís my faith in You, Father.
My faith in Your Word, my faith in Your promises,
My faith in You wholely moves me through the impossible.
Iíve been away for a while but Youíve been on my mind daily.
Yes, there isnít a day that goes by where You arenít on my mind.
While Iíve been away, Iíve been surrounded by external voices
Telling me everything I fear, everything I donít want to hear,
repeating all those things that have held me back
throughout my life those same words are now old.
I used to be frustrated and angry hearing those things,
But You, Father, have helped me move forward and rise above that.
Iíve placed my trust in You, and itís immovable,
for this reason, those external voices have no power over me,
and through You, O Lord, Iím able to achieve great things.
I can sing in front of them, I can smile in front of them,
I can find joy in the darkest moments because of You.
Some get angry, spitting threatening words from their mouth
like a hissing serpent, they strike with frustration
for they are coming to realize how powerless they are.
Their dark clouds they love so much no longer have an effect.
Your Word and the hope it gives me burns a hole right through them.
Now here comes the sun and nothingís going to stop it.
Threats of death mean nothing to me,
for I know, Father, you will save me,
and if You donít, You are just ushering me into Your presence.
Hear me little fear, I disown you, now itís your turn to run.
I am fearless.
Hear me useless doubt, this home is no longer yours.
I have faith.
Hear me insecurity, you are my past and no longer exist!
In the Lord, I am secure.
Now, Father, I pray, for words planned long ago,
long before the world began, You had a plan for me,
bring all that youíve planned for me to life.
Bring the purpose for all who I am grateful for to pass,
You know who they are, I speak of them to You
that we may all live by Your will,
may it be done.
I ask this in Jesusí name,
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
