I can't tell you how many times I've wondered
"What is it about me that God thought was worth saving?"
He just revealed this to me:
It's not that I have anything to offer that I was worth saving,
It's not that I'm so special that He just couldn't let me go,
It's that He is worthy of praise from a helpless soul that's been rescued.
He alone deserves the glory, all the glory.
Here for a while I thought that I must really be something special.
No, We're no good until He's drenched us in His mercy.
Which makes me tremendously glad that He is merciful;
I mean, He owns everything anyway, He doesn't have to have compassion on us.
But He does!
And if that's not reason enough for you and I to give Him a big ol' "thank you!",
I don't know what is.
Until next post,
A gratefully humbled Chelsea
