It looms ominously

A black cloud on the horizon

Silently it sweeps across the sky

Until there is no more light

Just a sheet of darkness and dread


You can’t look beyond it

The insurmountable mountain

The future only brings fear

Stress is a filthy rat

Gnawing at the knot of your heart

Like a stone your stomach drops to the depths


Whatever awaits you

When the sun rises up again

Whatever you fear

Know that you are never alone


“…I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Joshua 1:5 (NIV)
