Lent 2017: Grace Conquers

IMG_0611

In the depth of the night
When sleep evades,
I feel small, alone,
Totally and utterly insignificant in the universe,
I think only the worst.
Who am I that You are mindful of me?
I cannot comprehend
Why You should care for me;
You created everything,
I am nothing –

I am of no significance
In the scheme of things,
An infinitesimal spec in the aeons of time.
Yet You tell me that I matter,
Your grace conquers.
You continue to pour out your love
Throughout the night,
Quietly comforting my fears,
Your magnanimity astounds me,
Truly.

Psalm 8:4 ‘What is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them.’
