There is comfort in knowing that my fears are not bigger than God
They will not overcome him, they cannot
He is too big!
Though they seem large and looming
My problems are well within the grasp of the God
The God who is wise when I am not
Strong when I am far from it
And good beyond any goodness I know
And so not always having the answers
Yet knowing I need to trust in the God who does.
The God who is both good and willing.
And that makes the difference,
Not only that he is good
But that he chooses to direct his goodness towards me
The loving Father of the Jesus who suffered in my place.
So the struggle will be
Not with the fears themselves
(although my focus will be drawn to them)
But with making sure that my vision remains
Remembering and seeing
That God is far bigger than any of my worries.
The cross of Christ makes it clearer most
That he is good
And did I mention willing?
Longing to lovingly care for his children,
And that surely includes me.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Who is bigger than all our worries
Even though oft’ we forget.
