Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression.
But a good word makes it glad.
Out of Darkness Came God
By Lisa Noe
For God takes your worries away from you and leaves peace.
Make a joyful noise, anxiety is no more,
The Lord has cleared your mind and heart to make room for only He.
Cry not my child for God is with you.
Speak His name and you shall know peace.
God is in the heart and mind of those who find trouble in their lives.
A tear is but a sword of Satan, it is how he brings you down.
When you are worried or anxious about a thing, he weakens you
By taking your mind off of Christ your Savior.
God destroys depression, anxiety, worry, and fear.
He is so powerfully strong and full of love and forgiveness.
Worry not! For God is with you and shall free you from the snares of Hell.
With God in your heart, you are strengthened,
You are mighty for you are Blessed by the one true God.
Almighty, in Your wisdom, take from Your child the fear and depression of life. Because out of darkness came God.
