The Valley of Decision

Standard

In the Valley of Decision

Trust.
Faith.
Belief in You.
Not things seen.
Not things touched.
Not things handled.
But You.
You.

Voices.
Echoes.
Deafening.
Piercing.
Crying out from the past.
Lies.
All lies.

Uncertainty.
Fear.
Doubt.
Arising from a place of confusion
And Double-mindedness.
Unbelief.

Seeing.
Beholding.
Touching.
Feeling.
Encouragement as You gently prod.
Peace.

Truth.
Absolute.
Untainted.
Unsoiled.
Pure.
Sweet fellowship with One Who loves,
And is Love.

Perfect peace.
Razing fear, doubt, and confusion.
Engulfing lies.
Inaugurating Truth.
Belief.
Freedom.

In Christ

Standard

In Christ
There is no color.
There is no class.
There is no size.
There is no scale of beauty.
There is no sex.
There is no title.
There is no example.
There is no age.
There is no status.
There is no importance.
There is no performance.
There is no ability.
There is no talent.
There is no achievement.
There is no superiority.
There is no intelligence.
There is no degree.
There is no handicap.
There is no greater.
There is no lesser.

For You have striped all of that away,
And declared us all one In Christ.

All have value and worth.
All are beautiful, necessary and needed.
All are talented and able.
All are whole and healed.
All are loved and adored.

For You are the Great Equalizer.
