so many doubts
doubts not of You
but within me
me, unworthy and unlovable
and yet loved
so very very loved

but why? 
why do You love what’s unreturned?
why did You accept the suffering?

You chose death
while I sinned
accepted the suffering
justified by blood
while I sinned

a Father’s love
a Son’s sacrifice
while I sinned

my sin begat Your death,
Your death forgave my sin.

and now
my disobedience 
fully overcome
by Your grace

with unremitting gratitude
I shed my doubts
a heart’s conversion
I trust in faith
not in myself

I trust in You
always in You
