the perfecting of us

Father, we come . . .

weary slaves to our desires.
our burden is our lack of patience.

You remind us that we have the power to live free.

we do whatever we think we can to feel better.
our pride makes a fool of us.

You remind us that this life is about persevering.

we are inept to contain even our weariness.
our character is shaped by our disappointments.

You remind us that our hope comes in the breaking of us.

wounded soldiers we press on.
our gratitude is for the process.

You remind us this is the perfecting of us.


linking with Jennifer, Emily, and Holley today.


  1. weary slaves to our desires ... we press on, Thank YOU and Amen!

  2. Lovely reflection Amy. I guess its been a while since I've been here, your blog home looks new and different. I like it.

  3. Beautiful, Amy. So grateful for the reminder that we truly do have the power to live free. It's His power in us! Have a blessed Easter!
