Extinguishing the Darkness
You are my Light.
I need not fear the darkness,
Even in the very depths of myself.
You know me.
You are with me.
I am not alone.
You are my Defense.
You alone are my Judge.
You are exceedingly merciful and gentle.
I need not waver.
I need only trust Your Hand
As You lead and guide me.
I have no need of anything, save You.
You are my Personal Savior.
You are my Personal Bravery.
In You – I am made well and whole.
In You – I am freed and delivered.
In You – I am made strong and bold.
Shine! Oh, shine in this dark and frightful place!
Envelop me in Your ardently burning Light
And extinguish all my darkness and gloom.
~ Laurie Pontious-Andrews
But unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and His beams, and you shall go forth and gambol like calves [released] from the stall and leap for joy.
Micah 7:8b & 9b
When I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light to me. He will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold His righteous deliverance.
