In the midst of Anxiety

Angst

In the midst of anxiety
Worry abounding
Stomach churning
Heart out of sync
Fear rising

They say relax
Face your fears
If only I could
I try but pull back
The panic's too strong

So don't face the fear
Rather stop and wait
Listen for God-a still small voice
To comfort and console
To find a stopping point

Slow down and stop
Let the spinning subside
At the centre of the storm
A pearl of great delight
I fall into the arms of God

Spirit flames rise
Exploding within me
But in silence and mercy
And I am washed in Grace
Have faith my child.
