all of my nothing


Thursday morning gathering
at the widows centre
I spoke about surrender
women with challenges
looming large
unreachable, impossible
Esther, Mary, myself
and each one with me there
listening, nodding
acknowledging weakness 

we can do nothing
but that doesn't leave us
without hope
for our Father
looming large
can do as He wills

this is good news
my brain knows it
oh, but my heart
anxious, aching
wants what it wants
to feel in control
and able

return to step one
as often as necessary
arms flung wide
Lord, I can't...

I am the Vine; you are the branches. 
The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, 
for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.
