Fearless and Afraid

I am afraid and fearless
I wonder why God delays so long
I hear the Holy Spirit speak
I see the answer to all my prayers
I want my answer now
I am afraid and fearless

I pretend that all is well within
I feel God’s tug at my heart for truth
I touch all that I know will be
I worry my impatience will be my undoing
I cry for those I love who are lost
I am afraid and fearless

I understand that God is sovereign
I say that His ways are perfect and true
I dream of the day when I will no longer doubt
I try to trust Him in all circumstances
I hope for the day when He is victorious
I am fearless and afraid

  1. The day we no longer deal with doubt will be either the day we stop growing/believing or the day we die…this is what I suspect, anyway.
