O Lord here I am again
Just plain old me, coming to you
As I’ve come a thousand times–
And this is what always happens:
Your response is immediate
You open your arms unhesitantly
You draw me to yourself
You clasp me to your father-heart
Then reaffirm my position:
I am a child of the King
And all that is yours is mine
When I begin my stammering account— of gross unworthiness
Your gentle smile hushes me.
With endless patience
You remind me once more –that my value never determines Your love.
Rather your love determines my value.

Philippians 1:6, NLT
“God will do this, for he is faithful to do what he says, and he has invited you into partnership with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”
