Poem: Fear the Lord

My name is Candice Ballinger and I am a Christian woman who loves Jesus and his word.

Fear the Lord

Fear Him with reverence

bowing at His feet

humble yourself in His presence

do not harbor your guilt,

that baggage is for the wicked

the righteous dream peacefully as they sleep,

what can be against me

for the Lord is on my side,

Jesus is my savior

my all-knowing and all-powerful guide

I go without nothing

because He is everything,

and He is after all the Lord of my life.


How blessed are God's children

how beautiful their hearts can be,

giants quiver at their presence

and the wicked hide from their faces,

aware of their eternal uncertainties

their holiness makes them weak

praise God for His favor,

let His love linger in our defeat

giving all of us the right amount of strength,

let us give thanks as we joyously weep.
