There are many reasons indeed
For us to be anxious with fear,
But the Lord expressly says
‘Be anxious for nothing’ since He is near.
Lockdowns with all frustrations
Can lead to much anxiety;
With financial loss and shattered dreams
Where hope cannot be seen.
Lockdowns strip the soul of a nation
Where fear can overtake,
But the Lord sends a timely reminder
For His extended hand to take.
We’re all suffering to some extent
But when we trust in Him,
His protection, love and comfort
Will envelop our soul within.
When we trust in Him
Irrespective of worldly events,
He’ll never leave us nor forsake us
Where His blessings are heaven sent.
If He can raise the dead
He’s able to look after our needs,
As His ways are higher and better
And when we ask He intercedes.
When we believe in His promises
That no weapon against us will prosper,
We trust in His sincere words
Where protection will be fostered.
When we become anxious for nothing
Our faith and hope within,
Becomes a shield and a guard for our soul
As we trust in only Him.
We thank God for Jesus Christ
Who settled our debt on the cross,
So undeserved, yet by grace alone
So there’s no eternal loss.
