Love Casts Out Fear

Constant, unconditional love
Allows the soul to trust
Liberating all my fears,
My shame, my self-disgust.

God knows me, yet He loves me
No matter what I've done,
He paid the price for all my sin
From birth to setting sun.

Love led to crucifixion
Though not the guilty one,
Though undeserved, He pardoned me,
The cost paid by His Son.

His perfect love now frees me,
I need no longer fear,
The past no longer has a hold,
The future He's made clear.

His death and resurrection
Show He is in control,
And I can trust a love like that,
All worries on Him roll.

His love controls my future,
He knows what lies ahead,
And I can trust His love for me,
I need not live in dread.

Yes, perfect love casts out all fear,
His love and power reign,
For I am safe within the arms
Who every breath sustains.


"Where God's love is, there is no fear, because God's perfect love drives out fear, so love is not made perfect in the person who fears." I John 4:18 (New Century Version)

"There is no fear in love--dread does not exist; but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and (so) he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love--is not yet grown into love's complete perfection." I John 4:18 (Amplified Bible)

"And I will betroth you to Me for ever; yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and justice, and in steadfast love, and in mercies." Hosea 2:19 (Amplified Bible)

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Yes, indeed His perfect love casts out all our fear once and for all. Amen, my friend, Amen!

Done and Sun. The rhyme of those two words made me laugh, at a time when I could really use a laugh. I really enjoy the skill you use to rhyme, you make it seem so effortless.
