He is good

I know you are good
It's all that I know
Everything else is uncertain
Your goodness is sure
Your love surrounds me
Your peace is secure
You hold me in the storm
You hide me in your arms
I'm fixed to you—not going anywhere
You will never let me go
For you are good

You Are

You are God
You are Good
You are Perfect in all you do
Who am I?
I am yours
All I am belongs to you

You are Healer
You are Hope
You are Victor over sin and shame
Take my heart
Every part
Let it beat with yours again

I give you my life
As an offering
I give you my life
My everything
My plans I put
Into your hands
To make my life
All I am belongs to you

You are Spirit
You are Truth
There is no one else like you
You are Holy
You are Glory
All my praise pours out to you
All I am belongs to you

May We

May we shine like the day
May we live convinced of what we say
May we put off sin and shame
May we walk boldly in your Way

1 Thessalonians 5:4-8

The Faith of a Writer

Who do I think I am?
Builder of worlds, architect of plots, promiser of better
I flesh out characters I love and give them a voice
They go where they want but I say: The End
What gave me the right to do that to them?

Who do I think I am?
Withholder of dreams, creator of tension, chronicler of evil
I set them in dark places so they know who they are
So they can break down the walls and overcome in the end
What gave me the right to choose that for them?

Who do I think I am?

Who You Are

In the midst of despair
Lost in confusion
When the darkness
Is heavy
And I can't see the way
I will sing of who you are

When the world tells me
Who I am
When I've abandoned my call
And I'm fear-filled and alone
I will remember who you are
I will tell my soul again
I will sing your praise
My breath is Yaweh
My life is Jesus
My heart is God's
My call is Spirit-empowered
I am because you are I AM.
