My Bright Morning Star

You've been with me, through all the hard times and my despair.

I was tumbling, falling deeper into the pit; I lost my grip, had little faith.

You reached in and pulled me out, reassuring and never leaving me alone:

I grew in You once again, You saved my life and soul.

Renewed faith and unbridled trust in the Infinite Knowledge and Wisdom is Yours,

the reigns are for the taking.

Happiness descends, utterly divine…

Though I needn't worry, I still do.

When I am afraid, I will trust in you.

No longer hiding behind a façade, I am vulnerable, breakable without Jesus by my side.

Dark times come these days, the black threatens to overwhelm…

the Bright Morning Star now lights the way, giving a Lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. I will hide its words in my heart that I might not sin against Thee…

The enemy comes and causes a fall, but with You there is no stall.

Two sets of footprints: one has abruptly gone.

Carried in love, confidence, and with an inner peace, many things begin to retreat:

anger, envy, jealousy, hatred, greed, emptiness, fear along with much more is taking flight.

There is no longer any spite; a new being has emerged.

Grace, wit and confidence is yet to come:

the story has just begun…
