Fly Away from Fear

Fly above the waters of doubt

Don’t let them drown and destroy your dreams

Don’t let your fears hold you down

Soar to the brights skies beyond

Keep looking ahead

Gather your strength

Never give

Fear a

Chance

Flowing Forward

Sign saying “Keep Going”

When weariness comes

Keep Going

Flowing like a river

Syllable Lune

I was a bit weary today. One of those days when doubts step in and began dragging you down and you just feel defeated, like you can’t go on, but then…I saw this sign on a shelf in a thrift store, it said: “Keep Going” and I felt it was meant for me, so I perked myself up and kept going, and guess what?

I had a great day! 😊

Think positive thoughts

Keep Going

Weariness will leave

Fear’s Shadow

Shadow, poetry,
Image and poetry created by Leona J. Atkinson

It came creeping

In the dark night of my soul

Fear over shadowed

Covering like a thick fog

I lay paralized

Frozen in its doubt and dread

Until a shaft of hope

Broke through the darkness bringing

Strenght to rise and overcome

Choka

“When you face fear it evaporates. Shadows cannot stand light. —LeAura Alderson

This quote by LeAura is very true.

And this poem I wrote today is written from one of my true experiences with fear. We must face our fears and when we do they will dissipate.

Shakespeare also said it well:

“Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.”

(This quote has also helped me to face fears many times in my life.)

Security

Fall in the Forest Looking for a place to run and hide.

Health problems falling like Fall leaves

Upon my foundation of faith.

Above me threatening

Fears loom like dark clouds,

And Doubts circle around,

Causing a chill,

Til I hear

My Lord

Speak.

Reverse Etheree

He says in Psalm 32:7 that: 

  • He is my Hiding Place.
  • He will protect me from trouble
  • He will surround me and shout for my deliverance
