Couldn't Have Said it Better

I heard someone say the other day
They'd seen in me true love displayed
Blessed by something I had done for them
No sooner had they said these words
I found myself somehow discouraged
Uneasy as I took their compliment
Cause I know the heart inside this man
I know the truth of who I am...

The only thing that's good in me is Jesus
The only thing that's good in me is Jesus
I know me well enough to know
No matter what this life may show
The only thing that's good in me is Jesus

If you could walk the hallways of my heart

And see things as they really are

I wonder if you might be surprised
Seeing faded walls of pride and fear

Rooms I've filled with faithless tears
And corners where I've stood in compromise

But you'd see the work His grace has done
You'd know just how far I've come

In a thousand years
When the dust of this world clears
And I look back on my life
And see in perfect light

The only thing that's good in me is Jesus

The only thing that's good in me is Jesus

I know me well enough to know
No matter what this life may show

The only thing that's good in me is Jesus

Wow! Those words are so true. No matter how good others think we are, we could not ever become good by ourselves. Jesus is the only thing good in us.

Thanks for sharing, Kaylene!

When I am faithless, He is faithful.
When mine fail, His plans prevail.
When I fail, His mercy endures.
Without Him, I am nothing.
