I’ll Speak In You



I will teach you
what to say
and how to speak
to men

and you will not
be afraid
to confess Me
before them.

My confessions are established by You.

“But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 10:19,20,32 NKJV

Be Established


With mercy I
will draw you close

kindness, peace

in righteousness
you will be found

shame and oppression

I am established by Your righteousness.

“My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace be removed, says the LORD, who has mercy on you. In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear . . .” Isaiah 54:10,14 NKJV

Fear Not


Fear not
for I will help you

I will hold
your hand

keeping you
close to Me

as you learn
to stand.

My help is established by You.

“You will seek them and not find them – those who contend with you. Those who war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing. For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’ ” Isaiah 41:12,13 NKJV

Preserve Me From Fear

“Preserve my life from fear of the enemy.”  Psalms 64:1

I noticed that David didn’t ask to be preserved from the enemy.

Lord, preserve us from our fears today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Preserve Us



Preserve us from
fear today, Lord

from  false evidence
appearing real

that we may walk
by faith in You, Lord

and not by how
we may feel.

(I thought the words in italics were a quote of Corrie Ten Boom, but then read that the origin is unknown.)


“Because they do not change
therefore they do not fear God.”  Psalms 55:19

Change and fear often go together.

Lord, please change me today and tomorrow and then again, and more and more.   And here’s a simple poem . . .

God is willing
and He’s able

to change
our hearts and lives

He is longing
to get started

won’t we surrender
now to Christ?

Of Power And Love

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”  2 Timothy 1:7

God gives us so much.

Lord,  thank You for supplying us with exactly what we’ll need today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

I give you My Spirit
of power and love

and a sound mind
to think clearly from

making sure you have everything
you need for this day

to meet the challenges
that come your way.

With You In Weakness

“I was with you in weakness, in fear and in much trembling.” 1 Corinthians 2:3

My flesh doesn’t want anyone to see me like this. But God does.

Lord, please bring to nothing what I attempt in my human strength, so that only Your power and wisdom can be seen. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Vulnerably Covered

We learn quickly not to show weakness
not to tremble in our fear

“never let them see you sweat”
rings in our ears

but God encourages vulnerability
and says it is okay

for it’s in these very moments
His glory and power are displayed.

Only Believe

“Do not be afraid; only believe.” Mark 3:36

Jesus always knows best. For truly, life was at it’s scariest when I didn’t believe.

Thank You, Lord, for helping me minimize my fears by maximizing You in my life. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Fear Less

Fear tries to creep in
telling me to give in
after all it’s logical
to be afraid.

Fear says I’m faking
at being brave, making
a false smile
be my charade.

But You are inside me
and soon You remind me
You are all
that I need.

So I can believe
and simply receive
Your power to make
my fears flee.
