Instruction Book

Teach me how to teach them, Lord
In this brief hour of holding
To weave a firm and kind regard
In moments smiling, scolding

Teach me what to teach them Lord
For there is no deliverance
So much have I to learn; yet now
They look to me for guidance

Teach me how to instruct them Lord
Oh where do I find wisdom?
You point me to your sacred Word
The beacon of instruction

 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Cor. 12:9-11
