Every way wanting to get better and better.
She tried hard to live the law to the letter.
Knowing well His laws were right and good,
Something was missing or not understood.
Trying to overcome a weakness of the flesh,
Negativity she found, kept her from her best.
She was not able to conquer it with her will,
Nor with sheer determination, the law fulfill.
What is my problem she asked o're and o're.
That I'm not able to reach the distant shore?
Success she wanted now, not to be delayed.
Not my will but thine, she fervently prayed.
A vision of a puzzle piece came to her mind.
Thoughts came with it. "Love you must find;
Pray with your heart for the gift of Charity.
Then obey from your heart; you will be free."
In one moment in time; one taste of His love
Was like receiving manna from Heaven above.
She'd finally found the ‘peace’ that was missing.
Focused on Charity, she'd now be succeeding.
