Facing the Truth about Me, About Him

O Jesus, how imperfectly I keep my attentions
while your attentions never waver or falter.

O Jesus, how weak I am in the face of fatigue
while you are strength without failing.

O Jesus, how slow I am to respond in love
while you are love eternal,
swiftly capturing my heart,
my affections, my soul.

Your love is all I need
for I am weak and you are strong;
I am imperfect and you are perfect;
I am unholy and you are holy.

Let your love heal me,
inebriate me,
animate me,
restore me,
implore me,
cajole me,
move me
and perfect me.

You and only You.

I offer myself to you
in all my poverty
for all your glory.
