We are not afraid!

We are not afraid today;
God will see us through.

That's what we sang
today in choir rehearsal.
I am struck by the certainty,
the confidence,
the boldness,
the courage.

The words were not
"We will not be afraid."
suggesting some future hope of no more fear, but being fearful now is somehow expected.

No, this was a clear direct statement.
"We are not afraid!"
Not now, not ever.

"Why?" you ask.
God will see us through.

We are NOT afraid today.
I DO believe.

That is my prayer today.

Thanks be to God!

This prayer inspired while singing the following setting of the great hymn, "We shall overcome".
