I know my own weakness and emptiness.
And I sense my total inability.
O Lord, I am a helpless person.
For me to be the one to maintain myself till I see Your face, I can only bring disgrace to You as well as suffer loss to myself.
All that I hope and pray for today is Your love and power.
Though I have loved You, I acknowledge how untrustworthy it is.
What I now expect is Your love towards me.
I have held You before as though I were fairly strong, but now I know my very strong hold upon You back then is but extreme weakness.
My trust today is NOT in my holding power, but in Your holding strength.
I dare NOT speak again of my love for You, nor dare I mention my hold upon You.
Hereafter, everything depends on Your power and Your love.
