Faith Over Fear

Let these poems give you confidence to always have faith over fear. By trusting God our fears can be eliminated because we have faith that He is watching over us; He has a plan and His timing is always perfect! We hope these Christian poems remind you of this.


Fear and Faith
Poet: Harry Emerson Fosdick


Fear imprisons, faith liberates;
fear paralyzes, faith empowers;
fear disheartens, faith encourages;
fear sickens, faith heals;
fear makes useless, faith makes serviceable -
And, most of all,
Fear puts hopelessness at the heart of life,
While faith rejoices in its God.

Christian faith isn't so much what you say you believe but how you behave in a consistent manner.
A.W. Tozer



Faith Opens The Door
John McLeod, 1982


Trembling on my bough of indecision
No way seemed clear and safe to step upon,
I found no answer to my fevered questing
No rack to base my fumbling reasoning on.
And then I heard the soft words of another
That deep within I'd never sensed before,
Saying: God is Love, and Love is understanding,
And Faith the key that opens every door!

Thus, suddenly I was no longer wary
And taking new found courage from each word
I strode forth finding light to cheer and guide me
And all my fears seemed groundless and absurd,
This then is realization of His wisdom,
His Truth that will abide for evermore,
For God is Love, and Love is understanding,
And Faith the key that opens ever door!

Faith and Fear



Longing

Poet: Greta Zwaan, 2004


The gulf is fixed, set there by God, no further can man go,
Decisions that are left too long no one can overthrow.
The Scripture's full, warnings galore, you chose while you're alive,
You plant your flag, you make your stand, or you will not survive.

The mandatory way of God can follow but one path:
The blood that Christ spilled for your sin removes eternal wrath.
God cannot, will not, look on sin as though of no account,
For all good works, like filthy rags, you cause your sins to mount.

Should you decide there's time galore, your life's in your control,
Beware! The moment soon might come when God will claim your soul.
Your destination must be sealed before you your final breath,
Acceptance cannot reach your soul beyond the call of death.

No prayer of saints can draw you back - there is no second chance,
Once you have breathed your final breath there's not a backward glance.
You have one chance and one alone to claim your destiny,
While here on earth you make your choice to let God set you free.

Do not let others set your goals, for man leads man astray,
The truth can only come from God, there is no other way.
The warnings have been handed out, the danger signs are clear,
I beg you, make your choice for God, then death can bring no fear.

You'll spend eternity with Christ, you'll want to give Him praise,
The time to be prepared is NOW! Be saved and change your ways.

What Is Faith and What Is Prayer?
Poet: Leonora Milliken Boss


Faith is the trustful looking forward
To a thing you think must be;
Prayer is the asking, in that faith,
Knowing it will come to thee.

Faith is next to knowledge.
And cultivated well will show;
Prayer is the concentrated asking,
And is a flower that's sure to blow.

Faith as defined above must show you
That few possess it in the rough;
Tis a thing that may be stored,
And one never has enough.

When there's sufficient quantity.
Imbued within your soul.
You may ask and you'll receive;
Much is within your own control.
