WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN WORRIES OVERSHADOW YOU?

“For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory." Deuteronomy 20:4
 
 
WORRIES
By Pat Severin
 
This life we live is riddled with what we consider worries
That sometimes come infrequently but often come in flurries
Of things we never would expect, the worst kind of surprises.
We’re unprepared, why aren’t we spared, are these what God devises...
 
To keep us on our toes and see just how will we respond?
Will we first try to handle it, while we should seek His bond…
And bring our worries and our cares and lay them at His feet.
Why is it after all this time we give God a backseat?
 
We should have learned that Jesus earned the grace that makes a path
Straight to the Father’s open-door no longer to find wrath.
Instead, we find His loving arms and better yet relief
From all our worries and our fears, He only asks belief…
 
That He is there, our Lord and God with all His power and might
To fight against our enemies of sorrow, worry, fright.
And since He is, we know that He will win the victory…
Against the unexpected things that plague us so we see…
 
That He is who we go to first, not let those worries fester,
But rather count on Him who says He’s always our protector.
He cannot wave a magic wand, make problems disappear,
But He can hold us close to Him, give comfort when He’s near.
 
Believe the words He tells us all, cast all your cares on Him.
And all your worries will be fought, His power will not dim.
He loves and wants the best for you, there’s nothing He can’t do,
So bring your worries & your fears and He will see you through!
