Breaking

My eyes are awake through the night watches, that I may meditate on Your word. — Psalm 119:148, NKJV

There are those days 

when you meet the shard-

edge of nerves, the riven-

end of emotion, and you 

have not even a residue 

of strength left. You reach

what seems the end 

of your reserves,

the end of you, but 

it is then you realize,

just as self slips 

over into the breaking,

you were never

going to make it

in your own power —

God’s grace is all

you ever needed.
