I Am Guilty


What did I bring
To your salvation table?
I had
no righteousness to offer,
no strength to give,
no wisdom to present.
There was
that I could deliver
that would commend me
to You.
I crawled broken
to your table,
weighed down and crippled by
my sin,
my guilt,
my weakness,
my foolishness,
my pride,
my shame.
I had no right to be with you,
but you picked me up
and placed me there.
You fed me the life giving nutrients
of grace
with your nail scarred hands.
And I haven’t left your
table of mercy since.

“What then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?”
Romans 8:31
