Fear clasps its claws around the neck while short breaths come and panic prevails.
The pounding chest rises and pressures applied and I feel myself losing this battle ground here.
Satan silences us keeping our feet grounded and tearing apart the wings of our soul so that we can't fly.
The unknown stretches her dark path straight in front and I do not take it and let the fire of the light of His call never brighten.
Every voice that every said "you're not good enough," "nobody cares," "you'll never be like them," "you'll never make it," "they have what it takes and you don't," it plays over and over in the head like a well written sonnet singing its repetitious refrains.
Panic can be present in every situation, yet peace comes to those who believe that God is in control and everything is going to go as planned and my panic only makes the problem more powerful.
The day loses its delight, its song if fear and panic are preeminent.
If we awake and believe that we've already failed we will not be able to breathe life's joy into a day and we will become just another pawn practicing routine without a restful chest.
This life, this world, lose the fear and panic and spread open the arms and embrace the chances, the chases, the risks, take the steps to the unknown path and lighten the long roads with His love.
We cannot fail if we follow after the Father.
Plans don't always go perfect, but they go after a Purpose, a Point, a Person.
Awake believing that fear has no home here and panic has no place.
Awake knowing that the Father's love is enough, that you are enough as you are, that fear cannot replace the Father within you.
Deuteronomy 31:6 "Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you."
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?"
