Fearless In Him

Fearless in Him

Nothing can replace what disease has stole,
Yet I am not alone…
Now that God indwells as a guest in my soul.

Yes, grief and disappointment ravish my mind –
I fear not their shadows…
Since Love overflows the empty I leave behind.

Despair and fear cannot dig their roots in me,
Where Love is bitter soil…
Only gratitude crumbles me to my knees.

Thank you Lord
For love sublime
Raise my eyes
beyond the blind.
Carry my soul
out from my sin
For now I see…
Where I end and
You begin.
Amen.
