Despairing of my own power

So much of what has happened is recent years has kept knocking the pillars of my so-called "knowledge" out from under me. I increasingly find myself certain of increasingly fewer things. But those fewer and fewer bedrock truths are becoming more and more solid as my experience increasingly becomes that foundation upon which I have confidence. 

And that is not because my experience is that of someone who is "making it". No, my experience is of someone who has failed and despaired of my own power and effort and knowledge. Instead, the solid rock upon which I find myself standing firm is the power of One greater than me. I need not understand, but only to trust.

His is the Power; mine is but to surrender.
