i am not enough

I started out a bit arrogant,

thinking “I’ve got this”

and went on my way.

 

Only to realize quickly

that I do not yet possess the faith

or the strength

or the wisdom

for a season such as this.

 

So, I bow all of me to Him

and ask for forgiveness

for even thinking I could do any of this on my own.

Reminding myself that I am nothing without Him

and His grace is sufficient.

 

Oh how grateful I am that His strength

is made perfect in my weakness

and His love and forgiveness never fail.

 

2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
