scared stiff

there are those times in our lives
when we are the most afraid
a symptom of brain activity
that tears our nerves to shreds
in those times of misery
when the future is in doubt
we try to find some peace of mind
looking all about
while trouble speeds our way
were looking for solutions
before the fateful day
when it comes the conclusion
in this place and time
is where i am right now
i know God has the answer
i just wish i knew how
here i sit in my home
just days before destruction
i never felt more alone
while waiting for Gods instructions
in Him i'll put my trust
each and everyday
where ever this thing takes me
i know it is His way

i cannot see the future
but i have seen the past
i've seen a few disasters
i look back now and laugh
i've done this thing before
i have to face my fears
give up on the loneliness
doubting God and tears
no matter what the future
if it's here or if it's there
i know God is with me
my God is everywhere
He's giving me patience and faith
for when i'm old
things that now seem to me
worth much more than gold
a little more patience and a little more faith
two things i earn while God has me wait
with hairs turning grey
my wisdom is found
it took a lot of years 
for wisdom to come around 
there is danger in the future
but i am safe and sound

    How true that wisdomcomes late, so sad we go through all that just about destroys us. Iwehad taken life seriously and know how important God's instructions were I wonder how different it all would have been. Great descriptions on our helplessness. Luv, Lizzie

    nothing to be scared about, sweet situation, just the machinations of 2012 gathering pace...but one should avoid becoming a passive observer in one's own life, we need to take responsibility for our own lives, that's why we've been given that wonderful thing called free will :-)
