I Need What He has to Offer

I find myself lacking. I look at all I am and the complete of it is inadequate. I know all too well my faults and my failures. 

Who is this man that knows my name?  He calls me beloved.  It can not be, he is the King!  

But I mess up all too much. My mistakes are a burden, drowning me in guilt. He takes my hand and leads me to the cross.  “Do you want to be free?”

I clutch my chains and hold them tight, I cling to my guilt, my shame, and my pain. It is my pride. 

I am nothing. He is everything. He chose me. Now I must choose, freedom from my chains or the pain of my pride.

  1. It is hard for us to let go of our guilt. I struggle with that often. When I feel I’m good with God those past sins return to haunt me. It is then that I realize just how much I need my Jesus and His forgiveness. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. “The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.” – Ps 23:1
    I often find myself too proud to let go of guilt, shame, and bitterness. Yet when I finally committed myself fully to trust in God’s plan, it was truly liberating! Thanks for sharing this!
