So God created human beings in his own image (Genesis 1:27; NLT).

“…I am the LORD who heals you” (Exodus 15:26; NLT).

“For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost” (Luke 19:10; NLT).

He restores my soul (Psalm 23:3; NKJV).

You make us in your own image,
But we like to think
We don’t need your help
Through life.

So we do the best we can
To heal our fragile bodies
Without reference to you –
Often getting positive results.

We also try
To fix our damaged minds
Without asking for your help –
On the whole, that’s less successful.

But not one of us
Can mend a broken heart, Lord,
Nor do we have your power
To save lost souls.
