I am nothing but dust and ashes (Genesis 18:27; NIV).

You […] are complete through your union with Christ (Colossians 2:10; NLT).



Lord God,
Alone, I’m nothing,
And I’m no-one:

Finite, weak
And sinful,
A lost cause.

But with you
I’m complete
And I am perfect:

Boundless, strong
And whole,
For evermore.


We are so fragile

How frail is humanity! How short is life, how full of trouble! (Job 14:1; NLT).

I have cried until the tears no longer come; my heart is broken (Lamentations 2:11; NLT).


Lord God,
We are so fragile
And so finite –

Our bodies
Get sick,

Our minds
Get damaged,

Our hearts
Get broken –

But our souls
Can never be destroyed.




You have no equal (Psalm 40:5; NLT).

Great is our Lord, and of great power; his understanding is infinite (Psalm 147:5; KJV).

Remember how short my life is, how empty and futile this human existence! (Psalm 89:47; NLT).

For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17; NLT).

Lord God,
You have no equal –
Your greatness,
And understanding
Are infinite.

Yet you wait for me –
Sinful, fragile,
And finite as I am –
To make my choice,
And turn to you,
And freely give my love.
