I am not practical all of the time.
But I'm definitely not ditsy.
I'm not an animal lover.
But I'm not willing to let animals be mistreated.
I'm not antisocial.
But I'm not an extrovert either.
I'm not able to run a mile.
But I'm not controlled by my asthma.
I am not a dummy (where did the "b" in "dumb" go?).
But I'm not always wise in how I spend my time.
I'm not a horrible big sister.
But I'm not as patient as I should be.
I'm not what the world wants me to be.
But I'm also not all that the Word wants me to be.
I'm not willing to sacrifice my purity.
But I'm not immune to temptation and struggles.
I am not defined by my outward appearance.
But I'm not incapable of comparing myself to others.
I am not able to do anything that doesn't compare to filthy rags in the sight of God.
And I am not completely thankful, faithful, and trusting of Him like I should be.
I am not true.
I am not loving.
I am not good.
I am not worthy.
Because of all that He IS...
I am not unloved.
I am not lost.
I am not doomed.
I am not without a Savior.
There is a Redeemer
Jesus, God's own Son...
Precious Lamb of God,
is all that
I am not.
Thank you, Oh my Father!
