I am often weary. I have failings. I make mistakes on a daily basis. I love, but often fall short even in this.
It is so easy to fall into the twin traps of pride (“I can do this myself”) and of despair (“I have failed again”).
Lord, when I am proud – show me the truth, when I fail – show me the way. It is you that can and will lift me, and it is you who remind me to be humble.
I have no power of my own.
