Holding Nothing Back

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Lord, is there anything that I 
Am holding back from You?
Something I’m too shy to say,
Or just too scared to do?
Something seeming far too big
For ordinary me?
Something stretching far beyond
All possibility?
When there are things I shrink back from,
Remind me, Lord, that they
Are tests of faith to see if I
Will trust You, and obey.
For with You there are no such things
As impossible tasks.
You’ve promised You’ll supply the grace
To do the things You ask.
And all You really want from me
Is faith to follow through,
Along with understanding that
My strength will come from You.
“I can do all things through Christ
who strengthens me.”
Philippians 4:13 NKJV
