Weak and wobbly.
Lying in the dark, thoughts run wild like animals let loose from cages.
And I want to run and hide, take cover.
Unseen hands, a vise grip. Held. Yet not captive.
Lion of Judah works the night shift.
Into the everlasting arms I flee. Only true safety, no matter what goes on around or inside me.
A strong tower, mighty fortress, shelter.
Fighting back with two-edged sword. Slicing through darkness.
Word of God alive and powerful. Repelling evil. Vanquishing fears.
Perfect Love rescues me…
Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, ‘You are my servant’; I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
You came near when I called you, and you said, “Do not fear.”
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid.
When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last.
Peace reigns when Love is on the throne.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
