Thought for the day, from Thomas Merton: A Book of Hours, edited by Kathleen Deignan:
Perhaps I am stronger than I think.
Perhaps I am even afraid of my strength,
and turn it against myself, thus making myself weak.
Making myself secure. Making myself guilty.
Perhaps I am most afraid of the strength of God in me.
Perhaps I would rather be guilty and weak in myself,
than strong in Him whom I cannot understand.
