Standing By

1 Corinthians 10:12 

12 Even if you think you can stand up to temptation, be careful not to fall. (CEV)

12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! (NIV)

When I think I’ve got it right,
above temptation,
so sure of what I say,
beyond reach,
immovable
and untouchable

that Lord,
is when I am relying on me,
not you;
going by what I think,
my position

and when I am weak,
beacause I am no longer looking at you.

I come
in my vulnerability,
my less than certainty,
my times of wobble
and despair

Let my certainty
and hope
be in you
and not where I stand

for only in you
may I be sure,
only in you
may I stand firm
