The demons I cannot outrun
Have risen in my thoughts:
Reminding me of trusts undone
And failings I’d forgot.
I feel my spirit withering:
I hover on the brink
Of heavy, deadly unbelief,
Though faith still seeks to speak.
How can I brave these warriors wild
To make them go away?
I must remember I’m God’s child,
And then to Jesus pray,
“Lord, help me in this battle here!
Please hold me by the hand.
Please speak life that can conquer FEAR.
I need Your help to stand.”
He swiftly hurries to my aid:
God’s Kind and Precious Son,
And speaks to what had me dismayed,
Dismissing every one.”

“Taking every thought captive” – II Corinthians 10:5
Seems like this is something we need God’s help to do.
Praying for you to find comfort in Jesus when you are feeling overwhelmed,
