Not Afraid

Why kiss death, only to continue to dance with her in the night?
Pain is universal, but we tend to keep her in our sight
Wars are never ending
Plans are ever-changing
And there we are in the midst of it all
Waiting for our souls to fall

Why is misery always keeping me company?
I stare in the mirror and start to wonder man, what is up with me?
I stare harder and harder and don’t even recognize the person I see
It’s like the bars of a prison cell and I am just waiting to be free

Though I smile in the midst of company, people don’t know my pain and suffering
They don’t see through to my shattered heart
They don’t even realize my world is slowly falling apart
All I need is a small flash of light, just a little spark
And maybe I can see my way out of the dark

God can heal the broken-hearted ima need him to heal mines too
I don’t have a lot of good days, just a select few
So if I wrap myself in the words I know to be true
I know that God’s got me and he will come through

I’ll clothed myself in the words of Psalm 91
Because although I am being undone, the Lord is my fortress and under His protection no harm will come..my way
I will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day
I do not fear the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday
The Lords faith, is my shield, and in His refuge, I began to heal

Next, I’ll walk in the words of 1 Peter 2: 24
I’ll remember that God won’t put me through anything I cannot endure
HE HIMSELF bore my sins on the cross
So I realize all hope is never loss
Through His body and His unjustly spilled blood, He saved my life, so I shall no longer know pain or strife
Free from my sins I must live for righteousness
For it was only by His wounds that I even had a chance
Healed by his blood and shielded by his word are the only reasons as to why I walk this Earth

Now, I’ll speak on Jerimiah 17: 14
Whenever I need healing, HE will heal me
Whenever I need saving, HE will save me
For the Lord, thy God is the only one I praise
And I shall testify to these words every single day

And at the end of a really long day, I’ll bathe in Isaiah 1:18
I’ll lather in the lovingness of God
And wash off the bad things that try to attack and bound me
I’ll break free of these sins I know to be scarlet
Because as red as they were, God had enough mercy to make them white as snow just for me
So whenever I feel trapped, bounded, or broken
I’ll remember that His eye is on the sparrow and I know he’s always watching over me
