Fear vs. Trust


Father, today is like a brand new stage
with a brand new war that I must wage,
but my mind keeps racing to and fro
between the things that I don’t know.

My faith seems weak and frail to me,
as if I’m not loved especially
by the One who made the earth
and is still present at each new birth.

Why do I doubt and fail to believe
as if you had, or could ever deceive
even one of Your children for a single day,
Oh! why can I not keep my fears at bay?

I will choose not to trust how I feel
but rather make one more desperate appeal
that You should hear my frantic plea
and that You’d rush over to assist me.
