How I See Myself

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8

This is how I often see myself--a broken, useless mess. But thankfully, God sees me differently. Because of God's all-encompassing grace, his love covers over me and he restores my soul to wholeness. And even though I'm still a broken mess, I'm covered by Jesus' nail-scarred hands.

And regardless of my circumstances, rotten attitude, or poor choices, God still loves me and treats me like a treasure--fine china.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 2 Cor. 4:7
