The Strength You Fear

“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.”

~ Thomas Merton, A Book of Hours
