The heights

Psalm 18:31-33 “…And who is the Rock except our God…He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights.” (NIV)*

English: Jagged Mountain Peaks, Kodiak Nationa...

Suspended on a precipice

of faith in God alone,

Jutted into high thin air

pulled to heights unknown.


Lifted to his precious side

not meant to climb alone,

Somewhere past these rocky crags

his shelter bids me home.
