Kept

"This blessing has fallen to me, that I have kept your precepts" (Psalm 119:56).

Everything is a gift--
including my faltering, stumbling obedience.
I have not mustered up the steps
on the narrow path.
I did not create these feet,
renew this mind,
restart this dead heart.

Obedience has fallen to me;
my weak hold on His laws and promises
is all of grace.
My keeping is His keeping--
I keep only because I am kept.
