According to your steadfast love

       
         Do not remember the sins of my youth
                  or my transgressions;
         according to your steadfast love
                  remember me, for your goodness' sake, O Lord!

                         —Psalm 25.7


God does not see you according to your performance,
         according to how well you've done.
God sees you with pure love,
         with perfect compassion.


Throw away the dirty rags of your sin.
         Dry the tears of your shame.
There is only delight.
         There is only blessing.


Behold that love.
         Receive that compassion.
Rest in that embrace.
         Let it become you.
