Faith Over Fear

Always have faith over fear. By trusting God our fears can be eliminated because we have faith that He is watching over us. We hope these poems and scriptures 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 ath the heart o 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.
