Where's the Lion?

I have a lion inside me. It frets with impatience. Hurries to and fro. Constantly, it needs to be tamed. When it roars, it eats me inside. That brings guilt, powered by pain. It's like Paul's "thorn in the flesh." Paul asked God several times to get rid of it. Yet it remained there. Why? Hear God's take, "My grace is sufficent for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness" (2 Cor. 12:9). Lord, take the lion away from me! Maybe, the Lord will do it this time. It's a lion!
