The worst and the best

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).

Everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard (Romans 3:23; NLT).


Lord God,
I live in you,
And you in me.

Perhaps I am
The very worst
Of you,

But you, Lord,
Are the very best
Of me.

The worst

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me (Psalm 23:4; KJV).

I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely (Psalm 63:8; NLT).




Even when life throws
The worst it can
At us,

You’re with us
All the way,
To help us through.
