Perfect love cast out fear

Perfect love cast out  fear

Fear of rejection

Fear of losing a job

Fear of lack and having to borrow

Fear of sickness

Fear of past failures and mistakes being exposed

Fear of losing loved ones

Fear of falling short

Fear of death

Fear of being forgotten

Fear of being misunderstood out and being left out

Fear, fear, fear

Fear as opposed to faith

Yet the just shall live by faith

What if, just what if you discovered that the events you most feared would occur, will never take place?  What if you discovered that there was no need to fear and that everything was taken care of? Wouldn’t you sit back, let your hair down and take your mask off? 

Wouldn’t you be yourself?

Come to yourself my soul, you are known and loved. Be yourself!

His embrace engulfs you, receive this amazing love. No need to fear any more.

Perfect love cast out fear

In Your embrace

I find peace

I find reassurance, I am accepted and loved

A warm embrace

Undeserved gifts, all given by grace

Here in Your embrace

I am Your business

You will never desert me

I am Yours

I am safe

So I surrender everything to You

My failures, my successes and my attempts at success…

If I live then it is through You and for You

If I die then I will be with You

Either way it is an eternal bound

With You my God

Perfect love.

And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye slack to go to possess the land, which the Lord God of your fathers hath given you?

  2. Thanks so much for the reminder of the perfect antidote to fear: Perfect love. I thought of Romans 8:38-39 (NLT):

    38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Thanks also for the recent like on my blog.

    A line from your poetic exhortation brought this song by Wintley Phipps to mind. I think you will also appreciate this:
