anointed by the Spirit of the living God,
on mission to deliver the good news
to those who are sick, castaway, rejected, and afflicted,
I praise you Messiah for saving me,
for binding up my broken heart,
the Balm of Gilead for this hurting world.
I praise you for delivering me from the confines of my iron cage.
disintegrating the bars of my control, proving, and striving,
releasing me from the darkness of my fears and anxiety.
Lord, you save.
And my enemies that spun lies and deception,
tempting my darkened heart to despair and grasping false hopes,
from my broken DNA to ripened sin,
lost, lost, lost in a tangled web of grief and regret —
you obliterate and have crushed them under your heel.
Your day of vengeance and retribution has come.
and your absolute victory — certain and true.
You take me from grief and mourning,
you are the lifter of my head,
washing mind, body, and soul with comfort and hope.
You anoint my head with the oil of joy,
my cup overflows.
You are the giver of good and perfect gifts,
and praise wells up in my heart,
and my heavy spirit is shed off like old, dead skin.
Yeshua, you are Adonai,
you are Messiah, Deliverer, Healer,
the Way, the Truth, the Life,
the Author and Perfecter of my faith.
You make me yours —
a tree of righteousness,
strong, holy, bold, righteous, and true,
it is your work,
I gratefully surrender my life, my heart, my relationships to you,
so take control of my life
and have your way in me.
You are merciful, just, and true.
