Cast out my fear


         There is no fear in love,
         but perfect love casts out fear;
         for fear has to do with punishment,
         and whoever fears has not reached perfection in love.

                  —1 John 4.18

Holy Love,
         cast out my fear.
You do not punish,
         but only bless;
cast out my will to punish,
         to feed another’s fear.
You love perfectly;
         perfect your love in me.
Find my fear, hiding in its dark,
         my fear, lying in my deep places,
         and replace it with your love.

I breathe in: you touch my fear.
         I breathe out your love, only love.
My fear…
         your love.
