He Makes My Feet Like Hind’s Feet

Habakkuk 3:19
The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]! For the Chief Musician; with my stringed instruments.

You Whisper My Name

Standard

You Whisper My Name

Struggle – early in life
Never accepted
Never good enough
Don’t belong at all

Deep longing
Very painful
Pulled away
Lonely and afraid

Whisper my name
Comforting words
Respond to the need
Declarations of acceptance

Belonging to You
Called by name
Part of Your Family
Accepted and loved

– Laurie Pontious-Andrews

Isaiah 43:1 – Promise, My Personal Paraphrase

You whisper my name and declare that I am Yours.

Finding My Rest in You

Standard

Finding My Rest in You

My heart condemns me.
Voices of shame and condemnation
Threaten to drown out the Truth.

I am unlovable.
I am worthless.
I am not capable.

I question my faith.
Do I belong to the Truth?
Will You also condemn me?

You are greater than those voices.
You know everything.
You know my history.

You see my wounds.
You see my humanity.
You see my need of healing.

I am afraid.
Will You will condemn me?
Will You agree with the loud voices?

Speak to me more loudly
Than the voices of shame.
Be greater than my heart.

Nothing is hidden from You.
Be more powerful than my shame.
Let me find rest in Your Love.

– Laurie Pontious-Andrews
