Faith is a key
Fear is a lock
Faith, the fabric that covers me.
Fear, the incessant cold.
Faith, the shield
fear’s arrows clear.
And the one
who seeks for me.
Until faith then
becomes the door
I go in and out
restored.

"I will search and find my sheep. I will be like a shepherd looking for his flock. I will find my sheep and rescue them…” (Ezekiel 34:11-12)

"I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture.” (John 10:9)
