-My Fears Run Deep-
…Courage from on high…
My fears run deep, tis true,
But I’ve been learning to cast my fears on you.
Snakes, death, Ebola, whatever it may be,
It’s all nothing compared to the comfort in thee.
As stated in Isaiah 41:10:
Fear not, for I am with you:
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My
righteous right hand.
Why should I fear, for you are my strength and my shield?
To you alone do all things yield.
If I have a heart focused on you alone,
Courage can be found in your heavenly home.
For if I submit wholly and completely in your sight,
Live or die, I have won the ultimate fight.
Even though these days may seem like eternal night,
They can and will be overcome through faith in you and your Godly might.
Now I stand with head held high,
For today there is a battle to fight, and I must try
To daily live as if my life is not my own,
For it’s yours and yours alone.
Thank you, Lord, for who I am -
A broken down sinner, a God-fearing man.
