You’re love is so good that it is true
Because what else could make me feel this way?
Who gets to live in the reality that they are unalterably loved?
Affection that trumps my striving for perfection
You take the law that I never measure up to and fulfill it
So that now I am blameless forever
You can’t put something on me that has no basis
Shame only exists as the enemy’s formless weapon
It has no substance
All feelings of unworthiness are a lie
All thoughts that I’m not good enough have no rock to stand upon
But I have a rock that is my base and I can’t be moved when I stand on its face
This good news is true every day, never changing but only growing more real in my heart
I can’t ever be apart from this goodness and this joy unless I choose to put a barrier in between
But how can lies have substance?
We build imaginary worlds in our mind that define the way we live
And yet we might as well be in the Matrix
Because it’s just not real
What’s real is what you did and what you said that it means
Dying to take our place, only your truth remains
Why would we discount your claims when you gave your life?
How could we invalidate your blood
When you poured it out so we could have life?
You came to destroy the lie
So every time we live under it we deny your action that changed everything
Let your truth rock us, God, because once our minds are changed there will be no fear
There will be no restraints and what is imaginary will fade
Because it was never really there in the first place
Let nothing separate us from your face
