The more that I read

The more that it seems –

The less I am sure

If I’ve done a good deed.

In light of His Favours

There is no such thing –

In light of His Mercy

We are not meant to win.

Yet we strive hard

Tears wear us thin –

We cannot be sure

But we cannot give in.


Pondering: we cannot confidently rely on the deeds we think may have earned us a reward with Him. Regardless of how lopsided the scale of deeds may be, in the end, only His Mercy on us can truly tip the balance. We can never be sure. But we can never give in.
