With You In Weakness

“I was with you in weakness, in fear and in much trembling.” 1 Corinthians 2:3

My flesh doesn’t want anyone to see me like this. But God does.

Lord, please bring to nothing what I attempt in my human strength, so that only Your power and wisdom can be seen. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Vulnerably Covered

We learn quickly not to show weakness
not to tremble in our fear

“never let them see you sweat”
rings in our ears

but God encourages vulnerability
and says it is okay

for it’s in these very moments
His glory and power are displayed.

Exposed

“He who is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, shave off all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean. After that he shall come into the camp, and shall stay outside his tent seven days.” Leviticus 14:8

There would be no hiding for anyone undergoing this process.

Oh Lord, help me deal with the uncomfortableness of being exposed and transparent so others can see You at work in me. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Vulnerable

Trees drop their leaves
and stand exposed
to winter’s stare

vulnerable before men
they reach for God
and await transformation.
