Rescue

Your sword of Truth,
A beacon of light,
Penetrates my soul,
Highlighting holiness,
Cracking,
Peeling away
Layers of deception,
Illusions in which
I once preferred
To dwell,
Hiding
From my Savior,
Who rescues me
From such dark,
Desolate dungeons
I once called home,
So familiar,
Not having seen
There beyond
Flickers and beams
Of His glory
I now behold.

(2002)

Isaiah 42:16
I will lead blind Israel down a new path,
guiding them along an unfamiliar way.
I will brighten the darkness before them
and smooth out the road ahead of them.
Yes, I will indeed do these things;
I will not forsake them.

Hebrews 4:12, 13
For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.
