Adequacy almost always seems just out of reach
the moment I think I’ve got it is the moment that life will teach
me once again that I am inadequate still
despite my resolve determination and will
and I guess I should expect it by now – how else could it possibly go?
if I was adequate for every task how would I possibly grow?
on some levels I’m thankful for my many inadequacies
for it is these by the truckloads that bring me to my knees
and all the adequacy I can imagine is found in such a place
beaming just beaming upon His perfectly glorious face
in His presence my adequacy doesn’t stand a chance
my adequacy limps along while His rises to dance
my adequacy gets knocked down when tasks are too tough
my adequacy is insufficient His is perfectly enough
