Secure in His Embrace

by Dave Mudford © 2023

Insecure in who I am
wondering if I am good enough,
Life lived as a worthless scam
pretending I'm untouched by the tough;
Self hidden within my shame
disguised by a smile of detachment,
Excuses building my claim
a scared little boy with no attachment.

Shyness drives me inward
lonely and unsure of my worth,
Feeling lost and injured
frightened by their imagined mirth;
Pride captures my struggles
undermining confidence and trust,
Broken; my faith buckles
Expectations, sees hope turned to dust.

Jesus finds me in my despair
assuring me I am good enough,
Life lived as Father's precious heir
knowing He will guide me through the tough;
Christ hidden deep within my heart
enlightened by the smile of His grace,
Created as His living art
insecurity lost, in His embrace!
