Strength In Weakness
By June Stein
Without You, we would be battered – unfit to go the length,
We never leave them all behind, and never cease to fall,
But, when we fall, we realize Your Grace is over all.
In Grace, we can begin again to do the best we can,
You know our every thought and need, and we are in Your hand,
Every time we fall, we can be stronger when we rise,
Praying that Your love will be reflected in our eyes.
While here on earth, it’s true, we are confined to this world’s bounds,
But we catch a glimpse of Glory, and echoes of the sounds…
Of Heaven, that await us when our time on earth is through,
In moments when our hearts and minds are, solely, fixed in You.
‘Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.’
[Isaiah 40: 28-29]
