Safe place

You are my safe place,
in my emptiness I always experience Your fullness.
When lies, doubts, and my weaknesses are creeping
just one Word comes from You 
everything turns into vain.

You are faithful to Your promises, 
a real friend, faithful Father, and great lover.
You hate my sins but You liberated me from them
through the blood of my Savior Jesus Christ,
in His name, he defeated my unbelief
everything comes from You Lord, 
Your goodness abounds in me.

Let me see Your goodness in each and everyday,
fight for me when critics and foes come around
Your transcendental power always breaks my fears
Show them Oh Lord, how great You are, hide me in Your arms.

Give me discernment Oh LORD,
to know what comes from You 
and to leave what doesn't come from You.

Help me to search and to love Your Word.
Help me to recall Your promises.
Help me to lean in Your faithfulness.
Help me to love You like Jesus did.

I am nothing but a kid in Your arms,
I am at peace knowing I am always safe with You
even if I fall hard, You'll always catch me.
even if I cry hard, You'll always listen to me.
even in my mess and best moments, You are always there for me.

In my frustrations and celebrations, 
You never leave me hanging 
thank You for the peace that surpasses understanding
even in the mystery and misery
You always provide doorways and unending hope.

Oh God, my Father, thank You for loving me.
