No Longer Captive


Many has been the days of bondage and fear
Those days where your love did not seem near
I would show up ready at your front door
Only to run away after hearing other footsteps on the floor
Scared and in panic, I would hide in the dark
Praying these terrifying mental voices would leave without a mark
Can you turn on the lights for me, Father?
I am still here; it is "I" your daughter
I see you in me and I know that I am free
It's just that these narrow hallways frighten me
If you could leave the lights on in our house
I will return this time without being as timid as a mouse
I am learning of your spiritual law
What it means to love and to be loved without a flaw
Love has always been your number one tool
Teach me to use it as an extension of your grace, and not be a fool
Protect me with your armor Lord and keep me from all harm
I trust that my destiny has already been written in your palm
I am a little older now and have grown to know you more
Never will dreadful voices keep impatiently waiting at your door
The distance of my heart's desire which once seemed like years
Have now been shortened by my increasing faith and cleansing tears
I am no longer captive; my victory is here
Anointed and appointed; your love causes me to no longer live in fear
Lord, accept my love, for in this life I surrender
These words, "thy will be done within me," is all I silently utter
