I could spend my whole life trying to earn favor, earn love.
I could search the world,
ravish the depths of my heart
for some shred of worthiness,
but there is none to be found.
I could never hope to be worthy of the love that is shown to me…worthy of the grace that’s been given.
I know my own tendencies towards sin, my own lust after things of this world.If not for God, I know I would be the worst of sinners. I know I have it in me.
If you see any goodness in me,
if you see any worthiness in me,
any loveliness at all,
know it is because of the loveliness of Christ
