The Strongest Link

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Help me, Lord, to look to You for wisdom.
Teach me, Lord, to lean on You for strength.
Show me when I try to do things on my own
That, in my pride, I’m no more than a weak link.
For only You can make the chain a strong one
That binds my heart forever, Lord, to You.
Then with Your own heart bleeding in and through me,
Together we can do those things You ask me to.
“I am the vine; you are the branches.
If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit;
apart from me you can do nothing.”
John 15:5 NIV
