Stay by your worries
and they will become mountains,
towering dark across your path—
too big and terrible to cross.
But our vision becomes so easily distorted,
and the fears we see so clearly
are only scary caricatures of reality
—the closest things always look the biggest.
Stay by your God,
and He will become your universe,
shining like the sun on your path—
bigger and more beautiful than anything we can understand.
Then all the other cares
will at last appear properly—
like forgotten dust
in the throne room of the King.
