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.
