But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved. -Mt 24:13
I long for mission, seeking Him to serve.
How then fear I the tasks He may appoint?
He gives to need, beyond all we deserve,
For with His very Spirit He anoints.
Already I’ve His call: “Become a saint.”
That’s work enough, vocation sure and firm,
A destiny to turn a spirit faint
And force the human heart in doubt to squirm.
I rightly doubt myself; shall I doubt Him?
When I beg Him to lead, would He say nay?
He knows my task on earth; to me ‘tis dim.
To Him I’ve recourse. Courage, then, and pray!
Cling fast to Him in prayer, and humbly trust.
He’ll guide my blindness, but keep hold I must.
