Against Our Fear

Fearful, God, we are fearful
even though you yourself said
“Do not fear; I will be with you.”
we cannot help oursleves

We are fearful
for our families
for our jobs
for our insecurities

We are fearful
that we have it all wrong
that we are wrong about you
that everyone will know our secrets

We are fearful…of you
because we can hide notihng from you
Our insecurities, our secrets, our fears
all are laid bare before you
and we are terrified

We fear you
but for all the wrong reasons
and in all the wrong ways

So we ask, God, against our fear
that you be with us
that you be our strength and shield
that you take away everything that makes us fearful

And we ask fearfully,  knowing that you will answer.
