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.
