Aren’t I Worth Anything?

ArentIWorthAnything

In me there dwelleth no good thing.

There is none righteous, no not one.

Nothing to the altar can I bring.

No salvation can be won.

 

All have sinned, no glory of God.

My righteousness is as filthy rags.

All my things with dung are shod.

Guilt within ever nags.

 

Can’t I do anything worthy of praise?

Is my good not good enough?

I should give up; nothing pays.

I’ll never be able to come up to snuff.

 

So goes the human and fleshly mindset:

We think of ourselves and want to matter.

Let us consider the Divine aspect

God’s ways are higher; we must our ways shatter.

 

I have loved you with an everlasting love,

I shield you with my strong right arm.

Look not below or within; look above

I will in no wise allow you harm.

 

With tenderness and mercy God has arrayed

With care each detail of His magnificent creation.

You are fearfully and wonderfully made

To manifest God’s amazing celebration.

 

It’s YOU! He celebrates each detail of you.

He loves to work through each facet of your

Unique personality, whatever you bring to

This life and those God brings to your door.

 

God has designed each child with delight.

He created us to need Him, He wants us near.

We can be whole only as we are right

And dependent on Him for all we hold dear.
