Remember That You Are Dust...

From Magnificat, the Meditation of the Day by Venerable Thomas A Kempis:
It is there you show me to myself-- what I am, what I have been, and what I am coming to; for I am nothing and I did not know it.  Left to myself, I am nothing but total weakness.  But if you look upon me for an instant, I am at once made strong and filled with new joy.  Great wonder it is that I, who of my own weight always sink to the depths, am so suddenly lifted up, and so graciously embraced by you.
This paragraph really spoke to me.  In recent years the Lord has shown me how profoundly weak and dependent on him I am.  I am dust, yes.  But in Him, I can do all things.  Blessed be God.

May this Lent bear much spiritual fruit for us all!
