1 Peter Ch 5 v7 Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.

Why be afraid when Jesus is near
Why be afraid He is always here.
Help is at hand, for you and for me,
Just trust in the Saviour, then wait and see.

Give Him your worries, fear and doubt,
He has the power to cast them all out
No need to worry, he'll meet every need,
He is our saviour, a true friend indeed.

He loves each one with a love that is true.
He wants the best for me and for you.
So trust in Him, don't run and hide
He will always be there, right by your side.

He always answers every prayer
Though sometimes we feel he is not there.
He will answer in the way that is best,
In Him we can find  joy peace and rest.


This is a poem that God gave to me a few years ago now. It was an amazing experience and quite unexpected!!

I was just going about my work when suddenly some words came into my mind, and I thought that's strange then another line came to me so I quickly got a pen & paper and wrote them  down, It was definitely from God not me I only wrote them down as they came to me!!

Thank you Lord that you are always there for us. We need not fear knowing that we can call on you at anytime.
