You Alone

Written by Stephanie Ann

Inspired by Jeremiah 17: 7

You alone are my hope; the one I trust and have confidence in. On days of dread and anxiety, I turn to you & find rest. I am planted deep in You. Coming my way are all things trying to knock me down, but You keep me steady and secure. Still standing, I am.

You Know

Written by Stephanie Ann
October 21, 2018

You know the plans you have for me; plans to prosper me and not to harm me. Plans to give me hope and a future. I cried out to you. I heard you tell me You love me.  I inclined my heart to You and showers of your love came over me.  I know You love me; tears running down my face. Before I speak, You already know what aches my heart.  As I draw closer, You are there drawing closer to me. You meet me here. Already knowing what I need, You swing Your arms wide open. I run into them. How I need you so much. I need You so much, for You know the plans You have for me; plans to prosper me and not to harm me. Plans to give me hope and a future. I believe You. I really believe you.  You reminded me of this, for You knew what I carried in my heart. Every tear You see, not one goes unnoticed.  You have a plan for every tear. You save them for the proper time. To spring forth something great; watered with the tears I’ve shed.  The pain; the hurt, the soil for Your promises in my life. For You know the plans You have for me; plans to prosper and not to harm me. Plans to give me hope and a future.

-Jeremiah 29:11

Breaking Through

Written by Stephanie Ann

I cannot explain the feeling I carry within. There are changes being made, I haven’t yet understood whether they are good or bad. The flesh says yes, but my conscience within says something different. The attitude being set forth isn’t like it was before. There’s a good inside that is breaking free, fighting forward, leaving it all behind.

Brave

Written by: Stephanie Ann

Staring evil in the face brought the want to hide away. The still small voice within lifted me up and said, “that’s not who you are.” Things happen that I don’t understand. My eyes were taken off of you, and fear crept in. By my side you never left. I’m grateful, I’m secure.

A Closed Heart

Written by: Stephanie Ann

A closed heart, self-defense; a lonely road it can be. In constant watch; on constant guard; tiring it can be. We take up a burden of being our own defender; that great task, we cannot handle. Our minds wonder, suspicious of everyone we are. Driving one crazy is all it does. A closed heart, self-defense; a lonely road it can be. In constant watch; on constant guard; tiring it can be. Isolation, alone all the time is where our enemy wants us to be. Burned out, being your own defender; trusting no one. A closed heart, self-defense; a lonely road it can be. In constant guard; tiring it can be.
