My Weakness, Your Strength

Updated on November 1, 2012

Abba, wipe away my tears.

There have been so many.

My soul is wounded.

My heart hurts.

I am tired beyond any tired I have ever known.

For this time, for this place

Is what you have been

Raising me for.

I need your strength so

I can stand strong,

Facing the evil one.

Abandoning your purpose

Cannot be done.

Clothe me in your grace.

Help me to live forgiveness

And express your love.

I am sad and I am weary.

I beg for you to plant me as a tree

To bear fruit for you in season.

Empty me until I no longer am.

Hide your word in my heart.

Give me wisdom and

Renew me to continue this fight.

      Beautifully expressed. In Him we draw strength......for by ourselves we cannot go on. I vote this up and across.

      Melbelle, Everywhere you look, people are hurting. More and more, we all need the Balm of Gilead. I appreciate you reading and commenting.

      Oh, Teaches, thank you for allowing my work to touch you. Actually, for allowing the Spirit to touch you through my words. I appreciate the share.

      It seems like a lot of people are hurting these days. Times do not seem to get better but often feel like they are getting worse. Hang in there and lean on Him.
