"With all I am, in Your grace I stand." lyric from Love on the Line, by Hillsong Worship
All the pieces of my life,
every decision I have made,
everything that has been done to me and
everything I’ve done to others.
My hopes and aspirations,
my failures and successes,
when I felt good about myself and when I am consumed with self-loathing.
The times I have overcome my mistakes and
the (many) times I have repeated them.
My insecurities, my pride, my fluctuating ego, my confidence, and my weaknesses.
What I can do, what I can't do and
the line that is sometimes blurred between them.
My love for those close to me and
my deep compassion for others traveling this journey around me.
This is all of who I am and
all of it is able to stand in the grace God offers me.
This is a big, bold, stable grace
that gives me strength to be upright when I don’t think I can stand anymore.
It is this generous gift from God that envelops me and reminds me I am loved.
