i choose trust over fear

Your Hands-Marsha Ambrosius

Lately, I’ve been feeling so uncertain.  I wanted his reassurance.  Faced with a challenge, I needed to know that we were still walking this journey together.

“I can’t do this by myself. I need you”

“I’ll be with you. I won’t leave you hanging. I would never do that to you…”

He looked me directly in the eye. He was gentle and deliberate with his speech as he detailed how he’d take care of me. I exhaled! Now I can ease my mind, while I rest my heart, and body in his hands. He said everything I wanted to hear.

I am grateful for his patience with me. Every once in a while, old fears from my past get in the way. I start to feel vulnerable and insecure. He goes above and beyond to comfort me. He tries really hard to give me what I want, the way I want it. I appreciate every bit of him.

I’ll do anything for this man. Whatever he needs, I got him. I trust his lead, his guidance and his word. He allows me to release what scares me. That’s an emotional burden, I no longer have to carry.

In his presence I feel protected and safe. I feel supported. I feel his love. I had stopped feeling all of those things. I made the mistake of letting my fears take over, but he never stopped showing me that I mattered. He reminds me again that he’ll never let me fall. He will always carry me. When I look into his eyes, I rediscover the peace that was momentarily lost. I love him for the powerful way he loves me.

Tell me, how do I make you feel?
Do I make your soul smile
when you look at me?
Am I the one that you want?
Don’t lie…I can feel the truth in your heart.
It resonates through me
