Greetings from wintry Iowa.
Assailed by inadequacies, I wonder,
How can I do anything effectively?
Yet, the stars and all creation
praise You without a voice.
Moses, assailed by inadequacies,
spoke because You, Almighty God,
made his voice and called him.
Flawed disciples, filled with your Holy Spirit, spoke inspired truths.
Lord, You are the potter, not limited by our imperfections.
You carefully work the clay, heat, refine, beautify, perfect.
I am your vessel, Lord. You have called me.
You have given me Your Holy Spirit.
Therefore speak through this vessel
as You have ordained.
