Overcoming doubt and fear
Overcoming Doubt and Fear
Morning is my time alone,
My time to contemplate my day,
To say my prayers and atone,
For times when I have gone astray,
When I have forgotten to pray,
Let faith turn to doubt or fear,
Wandered from God's narrow way,
And to love's scriptures don't adhere.
I listen to dawn's birds intone,
Their thanks for the eggs they lay,
I listen to honey bees songs drone,
Singing to flowers on display.
And know that when I pray,
For faith that overcomes fear,
God will show me the way,
Help me to love's scriptures adhere..
What seeds of love have I sown,
As I move through my busy day?
What type of blossoms have they grown?
Do they enhance faith's narrow way?
I contemplate as I pray,
The path I have taken in my fear,
I must change the road I travel today,
So to love's scriptures I can adhere.
The birds give thanks everyday,
Without any doubt or fear,
Gratitude is the only way,
That I can to love's scriptures adhere.
