My Faith

Each morning I pray
to be a messenger
of Your salvation.
Each day I watch
as I fall back
onto my selfish desires
and misrepresent
Even as I pray
right now, today
to be Your messenger,
I have no faith in myself.
I cannot even make it ‘til noon
before saying something thoughtless
ignoring the beautiful You in the unattractive other.
Even as I write these words,
my dear God,
I learn that my faith must only be
in You.
