Peace in the Gloom By Brenda Drake

I have a tendency to overthink, trying to fix or figure out everything on my own.  I am not that smart or that strong.  I will never be able to carry the burdens and trials of my life alone and I really do not want to; it is so much easier to lean on the Lord and to rest in His strength and ability.

Peace in the Gloom
by Brenda Drake

Sometimes my eyes are clouded; circumstances block the sun,
And I find I am full of doubt and fear become.
My heart is weighed down and depressed,
And negative seems to be what I confess.
Dark shadows loom, and evil taunts fill the air,
And of all life’s dangers I am so aware.
I cannot help another in this terrible state I know,
So Lord I ask for You to be in control.
I admit my sin of worry and anxiety,
I need and request help to Your way see.
The day may still be dark and overcast the same,
But I am able to envision things differently, my faith reclaimed.
When I lay down my burdens at the foot of the cross,
Fear and worry’s threats are lost.
I am visited with the sure wondrous provision of peace,
The sunshine within is increased.
I thank You Lord for allowing songs of praise to touch my lips,
And for giving me the strength to the enemy’s taunts of gloom resist.

Matthew 11:28-30
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
