Faith over Fear

 

There is a fear lurking in the dark 

waiting for its' time, waiting for its' spark

 

For at just the right time and just the right place

It will reveal its' hideous face

 

But not a face that will cause one to run

but rather a face that enchants and stuns.

 

For the soul and mind are captured in awe

by something so real but something so far

 

Then it bursts through my body, soul, and mind

For it is something I have always known

 

My plans for life

My plans for success 

All balanced on a table upset 

 

My life before me all in a mess

My life before me one final test

 

My dreams crushed, my hope insecure

My life was nothing more

 

For at just the right time and just the right place

It will reveal its' hideous face

 

For I could not even think of new plans for my life

without hearing the devilish lies and voices inside

 

They scream and they taunt that I will never be enough

They whisper and chant that my life is too rough

 

For fear declares victory on the heart of a soul

when the lies are believed and given a home

 

The unseen of my life was to much to bear

however, I learned I was not the one to care

 

My life may seem broken 

scattered abroad

 

My life may seem lost 

the future a fraud

 

But I am not the captain of my own fate

I am not the captain of the rest of my days

 

For the God up above is looking with a plan

to make his power shown, to make His glory stand

 

So what hope I will find in an intentional king 

Let my praises ever ring

 

I may never see why or ever know when

But I know my God until the very end 

 

For at just the right time and just the right place

He will reveal His beautiful face
