Fleeting feelings of empowerment settle unexpectedly,
wrapping around my innermost being with happiness.
They always arrive when I am not looking or desiring
happiness or wellness, or any other beneficial gains.
Where does this unasked-for empowerment come from,
when it is nothing that I've instigated or slyly manipulated
or even rudely demanded from GOD as a personal request?
Excitement rushes into my thinking as suddenly I understand
that it is the Grace of GOD that gently infuses His Holy Spirit
into this feeble soul, to encourage and to empower me
as an heir of salvation in CHRIST JESUS.....
