2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Life with all its complications strove to knock me down.
Satan with his tricky wiles tried to steal my crown -
Temptations swirled round about, and testing vexed me sore -
It seemed as though with every turn fear knocked at the door!
I looked inside to find relief, but shelter was not there -
I looked around for one to comfort, but it seemed not one did care!
And then I looked to Christ the Lord that bore my penalty -
When I caught a glimpse of Him my fears began to flee!
The trials were not any less - Temptations still round me tore -
But as I focused on the Lord, with time, fears fled still more -
I thought on how He made it all, and nothing Him surprised!
I thought of how He loved me so - my life He highly prized!
And then I thought how much He suffered hanging on the tree,
It seemed that all my troubles dimmed in the shadow of Calvary!
I remembered all His promises: to hear me and provide -
I remembered how He said through life He'd stay right by my side!
When looking at the things I faced through the eyes of mortal man,
Fear would be expected - but that is not God's plan!
He wants me to see the things around through the eye of faith you see,
For when I do I have to turn to Him and give glory!
This life is but a short span of time - a wisp in eternity -
In light of that my fears subside and my faith will fearless be!
