Wednesday Riff: Stark Contrast

Lord, we long to be strong,
To be impressive and powerful,
To be the greatest, the best,
The last one standing.
We forget that, in bloodied weakness,
In stark contrast to the earthly empires
Of might and pride,
You changed everything.
Not looking right,
To a world so wrong,
Yet being everything needed,
And all that was required,
To help us begin again,
To open the door that no one could close.
So today,
If we cannot be strong,
Impressive and powerful,
Be with us in our stumbling,
In our foolishness and mistakes,
And may our small lives be to you,
A vehicle for worship,
And a channel for hope.
Amen.

If you've appreciated this, why not...
