Feelings of Inadequency


Most of us have feelings of inadequency from time to time. In response to a poem her husband wrotr in praise of her, Willa Muir said “I am only a botched version of what I was meant to be.”

But to her husband, Edwin Muir, Willa was a place of rest to a lost traveller, and a wonderful lens through which he saw Creation.

We can be our own worst critics, but just as Willa was perfect for Edwin so you and I, while not perfect in our own eyes, will be as God made us. Perfect in His eyes, and worthy of a rhyming couplet or two!
