In the Valley I have walked mostly scared and all alone,
narily I found myself escaping all the grasps of the enemy that wanted me for their own.
I searched and I wrangled and looked beyond to find the peace I needed,
A place where the enemy could not carry on where demons tried to weaken me.
but no where could I look,
no place could be found until I tarried here on this hallowed ground.
While snakes and vipers coveted me, and harm surely came my way...
nothing but God could rescue me or keep the enemy at bay.
His devotion often waited while I caught my breath,
His hand of peace it comforted me, so that for the moment I could rest.
Life on the inside rarely seems to show...
the covenant my Father gave me when at my weakest I came to know,
His blessed arms around me, and feathers white as snow.
His loving peace surrounded, and eyes so deep a flow.
This is the living water I thought, this is the final ground.
That I would know His saving grace, each morning my feet hit the ground.
Deliver us Dear Jesus. Help us find our strength in thee.
Cover us in your heart, and make our journey complete.
Oh High and lifted up, Is your song to me...
The one I call my own just to stand near you in a crowd,
Beloved I adore you and this my solemn vow.
Let my life's journey be a song that sings of you most HIGH,
let it wonder on the valley's low and mountains HIGH.
Let it reach unto the snow capped ranges of my Father's shores,
Let my eyes forever survey this lovely land that you now call yours.
Lead me to the waters, of your ever faithful sea.
and let me be the one you harbor, in your rivers peace.
Journey is the one that captures all I am,
So Father make in me the one who rivers sing of the great I AM.
Soldier me on my way Lord, as your sea billows roll,
and bring me to my final resting place with Joy & Love, Peace & Hope.

* I wrote this after reading Psalms 23! It was a quick reminder that I lack NOTHING!
If I fight my battles from the vantage point I cannot loose! NOTHING can compete with the things of God in my life! AMEN!
