When fear takes a grip on our heart

It’s because we’ve been influenced,

Either by external means or inner voices

Where the results can be immense.

When sensationalism paints a picture

With its negative brush or stroke,

The masses are quick and intent to believe

But much fear this evokes.

And this eventually may lead us to believe

That God really does not care,

When the worldly events become chaotic

And whether He really is aware.

But history always does reveal

That good will always prevail,

And although we don’t understand many things

It’s not God’s plan that we should fail.

We’re shown images of horrific wars

But not shown the love and care,

Of those who accommodate all the victims

And where hope and faith is shared.

The negative picture is always portrayed

But it’s always behind the scenes,

Where care and support along with hope

Makes the heart merry and serene.

And we all eventually will die

Whether it’s through war, sickness or disease,

So it’s imperative to trust in the Lord

Where eternal life we see.

Through ashes God creates much beauty

Because it’s at the point of no return,

Where He miraculously raises anything dead

Where many lessons can be learned.

Jesus was horrifically crucified;

The worst punishment man can see,

But it’s the beauty and good that the Father saw

When for our soul He did intercede.

Good will always prevail

Just when things look hopeless and dead,

Because we serve a God of miracles

Who has our best intentions instead.
