A mixed metaphor can be humorous or awesome, ridiculous or thought-provoking. I found the latter in a wonderful song from Steve Camp that resurfaced the other day in my CD collection. Here are some of the words:
Through this world
Lift me up when I fall
I am weak
And You are strong
And I’ll be standin’ on my knees
For only You can carry me.
Lord, I feel weak today. Help me to “stand on my knees” and let You carry me.
