My creaturehood

For the days and times when we so experience our woundedness and faults and wonder how God can still love us:

God likes me covered with my creaturehood
and with my limits spread across His face.
He likes to see me lifting to His eyes
even the wretchedness that dropped His grace.

~Jessica Powers (from “Creature of God”)

  1. As the old hymn says,
    He saw me ruined in the fall.
    Yet loved me, notwithstanding all ;
    He saved me from my lost estate
    His loving kindness, O how great !
