<Weekly Reflection-Prayer Poetry>
Our Lord understands our limits. He realizes our struggles. He knows how much pressure we can take. He knows what measures of grace and mercy and strength we’ll require. He knows how we’re put together.
Frankly, His expectations are not nearly as unrealistic as ours. When we don’t live up to the agenda we have set, we feel like He is going to dump our truckload of judgement on us. But that will not happen. So why do we fear it could?
In each passing year with our limitations,
we now more aware,
not just physical but emotional.
that leave us feeling drained and empty.
In your great wisdom you allow each one
to have weaknesses, not to discourage
but to help realize the utter need that last.
For it is in weakness, your strength shines
in our every rough times.
