LOVING JESUS... (Four walls do not necessarily a prison make...)

Four walls do not necessarily a prison make,
But fear - now that can be far harder out of which to break!
It slithers slowly... binding the hands and feet...
Its final aim to bind the spirit and soul, its work complete!
Once in place it SEEMS as solid as any iron bar,
Its ulitmate achievement is my life to mar.
To stop me roaming freely far and near,
To keep me isolated, trembling inside here!
To keep me ineffectual in my head,
So that the rest of me is... in effect dead...
Dead to Hope... dead to Love... dead to Care...
Dead to any and every way to share.
Loving Jesus, Help me kill this 'snake',
That tries to rob me of the difference that trust in You can make!
Help me to turn to You when it seeks to draw near,
To lift myself to You in silent prayer.
To trust You each 'Outcome' to Perceive,
Help me, Jesus, to be able to receive!
Loving Jesus, no one else will do,
No one else knows me, or loves me as You do!
Eternity with You will be so sweet,
Until then direct my life's work until it is complete.
Help me each individual fear to face,
With courage, hope and most of all... Your Grace!
Help me to stand up and my promises to You keep,
Until each fear lies huddled in a heap.
Help my soul and spirit soar high and free,
Help me from this prison to walk Freely with Thee!!!

(Romans 8:26-39  'The Sword of The Spirit'
 When satan tries to deceive us about God's Love for us,
 when we are only TOO aware of our own humanity!)
