All my thoughts need correction,
For before, in my meekness,
My own so-thought perfection
Always became my weakness.

I found in my defiance
Anxieties each hour
In my misplaced reliance.
Instead, I need God’s power.

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
