It is False Evidence Appearing Real

And it can truly grip the heart;

It is debilitating and destructive

And further anxieties it will spark.

It will destroy all common sense

And overtake your mind,

And envelop your heart and your emotions

It will leave true peace behind.

It is born from sheer darkness

Like a spider’s web and trap;

Will dissolve all clear thinking

And all rational thoughts it will overlap.

Although it’s something we all feel

Naturally in this fallen world,

We are not to allow it to take residence

And to feed it through deeds and words.

It is sheer madness on all accounts

When fear grips the soul;

It’s a plague and it’s a virus

That has the power to control.

It can become mass hysteria

As each looks out for his own,

Dismissing the true needs of others

From selfish seed it’s grown.

It is driven by propaganda

As a means to control,

As drastic action and dire measures

Are their motive and end goal.

The only one we are to fear

And to have respectful reverence for,

Is God Almighty through Jesus Christ

Whom we all should love and adore.

God will deliver us

From the grip of every fear,

When we trust in Him He will provide

And all our prayers He will hear.

“Therefore, I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, nor about the body, what you will put on. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap..and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds?” Luke 12:23-24

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
