Yours is the quietest voice,
With the greatest impact.
You rescue me from~
You free me from~
My imprisoning past.
When I ran from my present moment,
To hide in my familiar past.
When I fell into a fantastical future,
To soothe the pain of now.
And dark thoughts prodded me to continue,
And night creatures pushed me to the brink;
Deep despair shook me awake.
A look into the abyss startled me,
And reminded me to fight for light;
To struggle, and to reach for You.
To humbly ask for you to help me.
And to listen intently…
Trusting in You again.
I told you of my fear,
I shared my inner terror,
I cried before you,
And you did not shun me.
I admitted my horror in the face of evil,
And my impotence in the cause of good.
You strengthened me.
You healed me.
You caused peace to bloom in my heart.
Death lost its sting in the face of the courage,
Which You also gave to me.
When I imagine that You are not real,
I lose my mind in illusions.
When I choose to face Your truth,
I return to sanity.
