Worry sometimes silences The dreams that I have dreamed Darkening the hope for joy Smothering out the laughter Quieting the love that inspires My heart to give, to believe To live with assurance of Him Who brings me a measure of peace A feeling that I have been blessed A light that reflects all my best Worry sometimes stops my dreams Of becoming someone I can see As kind, caring and giving of acceptance Someone who listens to God’s wisdom And lives their life with sincerest direction On a path of pure love sent from above Love that comes down to bring us hope Assurance that we are worth more to Him Than the sparrows or the lilies, We are worth His death on a cross That gave us sweet redemption The cross that made a way For our hearts to know true freedom The cross that taught us to pray With sincerity and conviction, in a way That God could approve and answer With love that goes on forever Love that is our best answer Worry might happen to the heart But the soul knows the One who holds The answers to our uncertainties The answers to our apprehensions The answers to our quest for peace He brings us the light that shines through The sorrow and grief, bring sweet relief To the heart who knows He is The One and only need – the Savior The King of kings and prince of peace This Jesus is the soul’s reprieve He is the answer to our every need He is the One in whom I believe! Worry happens – Worry brings grief But, with Jesus, there is sure relief Just listen to your heart and soul’s belief! Matthew 10:29 King James Version 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
