Fear Belongs To God

Fear in the midst of storms…
God completely understands.
He is a caring and loving God
despite all that He commands.
He has the power
to control the winds and rain,
but He knows that at times
we’re doing all we can to stay sane.
He’s not so insensitive
as many make Him out to be.
He protects His children
and wants them happy,
yet He knows fear will rule us
and tempt us to run away.
Sometimes He’ll strengthen us,
sometimes actually lead us away!
Fear is God’s beginning of knowledge,
wisdom is in having fear.
The challenge is to cling to Him
and know He’s always near.
