Impossible

God, I thought: this is too hard.
I throw myself at it.
I drag myself through it.
It is more than I can do.
It is hard; I doubt I have what it takes.

And then you said,
no, it is not hard. It is impossible.
You cannot do it.
You don't have that power.

But I do, and I give it to you.
I breathe my power through you.
You need not “dig deep” to find it.
It's right there, flowing through you.
It's there when you don't feel it.
It's there when you feel you're a failure.

As long as you think it's hard,
it will be hard.
But when you realize it's impossible
then you know it's not yours to do, but mine.
Stop trying to do it. Let me do the hard work.
You just come along.

I am doing the hard thing in your life.
Stay with me while I do it,
because without you, even for me,
it's impossible.
