Before, in my blindness, I thought that I had to earn Your love, Your forgiveness and that I had to ‘reach a mark’ before I could come to You. In reality Lord, You are perfection and You love me just as I am. It is You who does the work in me; all I have to do is get out of Your way, with faith and trust, and let You have Your way with me.
I am no longer ashamed! You have been with me since before the beginning. You have seen all my transgressions and mistakes. You know me! You created me! You redeem me! You give me hope for today and for the future! You accept me just as I am.
You are my salvation. You are mercy and You are truth. You guide me with Your gentle hand, cleansing me of all my wrongness, rebirthing me into Your likeness in which I was created. Through Your death, I have been sanctified. I did nothing to earn this and I am still a sinner. Yet You forgive me just as I am.
Keep my soul Lord and renew it daily. Let me never be ashamed to put my trust in You while I wait on You. It is through Your integrity, righteousness and compassion that I am delivered from myself. Thank You Lord that You are faithful to never leave me just as I am!
