Your Vantage Point
You are powerful enough to calm the hurtful memories that haunt me.
You are peaceful enough to teach me calm when I feel overwhelmed by fear.
You are gracious enough to replace pain with joy, bit by bit, so that I learn to trust Your hand on my life.
You are loving enough to overlook my shortcomings, yet at the same time, bring gentle correction where I need it.
You are God enough to know all things, provide all things, and deliver all people--yet You were man enough to taste anguish; to live in our narrow, stress-filled world; to welcome our weak platitudes; to endure the confines of humanity.
You can do anything. Your vantage point exceeds all others.
Why do You even bother with me?
I can't figure it out.
But I thank you!
I love you, in my weak, human little way.
