Afraid to Abide

I am afraid to open my Bible
I am afraid of what it might say
It might even start a revival
I will have to do things God’s way

I am afraid to get too close to Jesus
I am afraid to walk by His side

Keep the music and TV on loud and clear
I drown out His voice and His calling
Influenced only by what I see and I hear

This fear of course does not help me
It keeps me from being the best that I can
One day I must claim the Savior
I’ll regret deeply the days that I ran

John 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto
