Chris Tomlin- Whom then shall I Fear?

A Poem

I am not afraid of the dark.

I am afraid of what I cannot see

Find a fire, light a spark

Make all the shadows flee

Paralyzed by fear; I’m still

I am afraid of the unknown

I search inside to find the will

To move forward on my own

For so long I thought I was alone

I was afraid of what I couldn’t see

Until I learned that I was wrong

I let go of the fears and let it be

I found the light I was looking for

It was with me all along

Inside myself there is a door

To the One Upon the Throne

He walks with me through the darkness

I need not see what lies ahead

I need not fear what’s in the future

I need not feel the dread

He’s my light and my redeemer

He shows me the way to go

Through the fire and darkness

I will not go alone

Jesus loves me and my fears are gone

He lights the pathways I am to travel

I will trust in Him and keep on

I will watch my fears unravel

Kelly, thank you for the wonderful inspiration and courage that this poem has given to me. We are studying Psalm 91, I was kicking myself for not having written a poem concerning our studies when I decided to look for one on line. I read it during our prayer line and was asked by one of the leaders for a copy of it. As I looked for the name of the author to give you your accolades, I was pleasantly surprised to be able to thank you personally. I hope it's okay with you for me to share your work with fellow believers.

May God Bless and keep you!

Thank you so much. This was one of those poems that just came to me as I typed. I started with the first lines/idea of not being afraid of the darkness, but afraid of not being able to see what lies in the darkness and the rest just flowed. Honestly, as I was writing this, as the words appeared on the screen it was a comfort to me.. I realized that #1, Yes, I was definitely afaid, but that #2, I am not alone! He works in mysterious ways. Even in my own ideas. Thank you for stopping by to read and comment.

God is Good.

This is very lovely and i can relate 100% I was such a scaredy cat ad afraid of the darkness i use to wish that it never had night because of my fears. My pastor told me to read psalms 23, 27 and 91 everyday and i am confessing that those Psalms David wrote was very instrumental in helping me overcome my fear. GOD has delivered me i still have some fears but now i can walk in the dark, stay home alone etc. GOD and his son is awesome.

Let us keep magnifying Him for his deliverance.

Keep good and nice song you have there

Shalom and peace be unto you.

I thought your poem was beautiful and a tribute to "As I walk through the valley of the shadow of darkness I shall fear no evil."... very touching.
