Safe With You

Standard

Safe With You

You are greater than my heart.
You are greater than my shame.
You are greater than my guilt.

You are greater than the words
Of condemnation that flood my mind.
You are greater than my reproach.

I am safe with You.

You know everything about me.
You are intimately acquainted
With my comings and goings.

You know my hidden pain.
You know my dreams.
You know my sorrows.

I am safe with You.

I can rest quietly
In Your loving embrace
Knowing You love me.

Your desire is to restore me.
Your desire is to cleanse me.
Your desire is to heal me.

I am safe with You – always.

~ Laurie Pontious-Andrews

Isaiah 54:4 – Prayer/Promise

Fear not, for you shall not be ashamed; neither be confounded and depressed, for you shall not be put to shame. For you shall forget the shame of your youth, and you shall not [seriously] remember the reproach of your widowhood any more.

1 John 3:19-20 – Prayer/Promise

By this we shall come to know (perceive, recognize, and understand) that we are of the Truth, and can reassure (quiet, conciliate, and pacify) our hearts in His presence, Whenever our hearts in [tormenting] self-accusation make us feel guilty and condemn us. [For we are in God’s hands.] For He is above and greater than our consciences (our hearts), and He knows (perceives and understands) everything [nothing is hidden from Him].

About unabashedhope

The name Unabashed Hope comes from my favorite poem by Emily Dickinson. Unabashed means not embarrassed, disconcerted or ashamed. I believe Emily's poem, Hope is the Thing with Feathers, says it best: Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all, And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. I've heard it in the chilliest land And on the strangest sea; Yet, never, in extremity, It asked a crumb of me.
