Lost and Found

I'm always lost. It's by grace I'm continually found.

I have a great need for Christ
I have a great Christ for my need

-C.H.S

Forgive my pride

Who am I? 
I am nothing except what you build me to be.

Listen Up.

Listen.
I know I’m not the cool guy, the one who knows when and what to say.  I am well aware that I lack in many areas, so much so that it often clouds my judgement.  I know there are so many things I can’t do.  
BUT LISTEN UP.
I know my value, my worth, who I am is NOT DEFINED by my shortcomings nor is it defined by the work of my hands.  Yea, I can’t do ANYTHING right and yea, there is VERY LITTLE that I am talented in but that DOES NOT make me any more or less significant.  MY CONFIDENCE stems NOT from what YOU think of me nor is it derived from what my hands have done but it is rooted in what CHRIST has done for me.  I will have NO other boast, i will have NO other confidence, I will have NO other name behind which I rest than the name of Jesus Christ, the beginner and finisher of my faith.  He says that HE WILL complete His good work in my life and, oh man, you best believe He will.  
So go on:  
Make fun of me
Disrespect me
Mock me
Make a joke of me
But DO NOT mistake my silence or my kindness as a sign of weakness.  Let’s get this straight: I am NOT the joke you make me out to be.  

But listen.
I didn’t say a word about it.  
Even I have dignity.  

Broken thoughts

Despite what you think,
I am not a joke.

Have Mercy on Me

Verse 1 
I am a sinner; You’re blameless, Lord 
My sins against You can’t be ignored 
They will be punished, I know they must 
Your law demands it, for You are just 

Pre-Chorus 
If You would count 
Everything that I’ve done wrong 
Who could stand? 
But there’s forgiveness with You, God 

Chorus 
Have mercy on me, have mercy on me 
A broken and a contrite heart 
You won’t turn away 
Have mercy on me, have mercy on me 
Because of Your steadfast love 

Verse 2 
Father of mercy, You gave Your Son 
To make atonement for wrongs I have done 
What You required, Jesus fulfilled 
I don’t deserve it—I never will
