Be Not Alarmed
By Christine Hare Tate
Be not alarmed by the news on T.V.
We answer to a higher authority….
We aren’t governed by worldly events,
Media alerts or strange incidents.
Our King wears not an earthly crown,
And isn’t confined to a city or town,
Nor limited by time and space,
Or antics of the human race.
Why be oppressed by negative thoughts
Or endless, ungodly news reports?
The kingdom of God generates love…
There’s nothing negative in heaven above!
Trust in the Lord and filter out
Pessimistic reports that trigger doubt.
Our hope is not based on what we see
But by faith we walk in victory!
