By The Shepherd’s Side

The only safe place for a sheep is by the side of the shepherd, because the devil does not fear sheep, he just fears the shepherd. – A.W. TozerThe only safe place for a sheep is by the side of the shepherd, because the devil does not fear sheep, he just fears the shepherd. – A.W. Tozer

How trite to feel my feeble hooves are the ones that shoot down darts.

Why do I end up trusting in my strength – to make the Red Sea part?

Yes, through our Creator, we’re given the power to fight forces of dark,

Yet, this little lamb confuses my God’s might with my battle mark.

I will stand behind the Shepherd and loudly praise his name –

For he’s the one that spreads his hands and makes the lion’s tame.

He speaks peace to the storms and calms the winds with an almighty gaze.

He has held my trembling hands in battle and protected me all my days.

God, may I look to you and glorify your awesome might.

You are the one who truly turns my darkness into light.

You empower ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

But, it’s only in your mighty name all demons seek to flee.

I’m just a shell of flesh and bone without your spirit operating in me,

I cling to endless truth – you’re working in this frame for all to see.

Hallelujah in the Highest. I will praise you in showers and sunny forecasts –

For it’s you that’s given us a winsome future and erased our dire pasts. -KWH
