I'm Not, He Is

Wednesday night...the Lord dealt with me. He caused me to take a step back and take a look at myself. To search my heart diligently to see if there be any offensive way in me. Oh, my am I thankful that He revealed and exposed sin that I've been blind to. Thanks be to God through our Lord Jesus that these sins (complacency, selfishness, lack of discipline, and lack of humility) are not held to my account. Yes, my debt has been paid in full at Calvary! So, if I may, with the Lord that night led to this.....

Don't look at me
Nor speak
Highly of me
I am not
To be esteemed
Nor my name
Made known to others
I'm deserve to be heard
Nor worthy of your time
I'm not some one
Who is great
I'm not significant
Nor important
I'm not worthy
Of attention
Or of praise
But I do know
Of One who is
Who is worthy
Of glory and honor
To be exalted
And made much of
"The Lord Most High"
Is His name
King of glory
And Lord of creation
Is He
There are no rivals
Nor any that compare
To Him
So again I say
I'm not worthy
And I'm not great
Yet my Lord and God
He is

What the Gospel Does For Me

 Yesterday I went on a walk through the neighborhood meditating on the Gospel. Of how Jesus came into the world to save sinners (of whom I'm the worst); by His life, death, and resurrection. Meditating on this rich and glorious news led me to marvel at it. A bit later, this is what I wrote:

To meditate on
And marvel at the Gospel
Is rich goodness
For my soul
It's relieving
And freeing
It brings comfort
And restores joy
It humbles me
And causes me
To forget myself
It causes me to rejoice
And drives me
To greater worship
It reminds me
Of where my identity is
And of the hope
Of future glory
It exalts
And points me to
It's Author
So that I
I may behold
And marvel at Him

Yes! For that is what the Gospel does for me, as a child of the Most High God!
