Arms wide open

“…no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.” Psalm 84:11



What if I miss

the good he brings

because I’m not worthy

to receive such things?


It’s not about

my worthiness

but a sacrifice given

that washed me blameless.



I don’t want to miss out on any good you want to send my way! Yet, I don’t feel blameless—I’m human. I sin. Yet, you forgive. You restore. You make white as snow. You bore my blame on the cross and labeled me blameless. That’s how you see me. Amazing.


I accept what you’ve done and hold arms wide open to accept the good.
