My worth is in you

riches
*****
I worry the world will not value me
I fear I may not be liked a lot
Perhaps I will be discriminated
Who knows I may even be hated
For my worth is in you.
*****
I shall not look outside and hate me
I dare not love myself too much either
But one thing I delight in;
Is knowing my true worth
Far above rubies, a wealth of grace
*****
So why should I worry of the names I get?
Why should it be my concern that am loved less
Even if the whole world hated me,
Still I would rejoice and sing
For my worth is in you not out there
*****
I will live in peace and joy.
Delighting even in persecution
Smiling when I should cry
For when I think of the cross.
There I see my worth
*****
Hide me in your peace Lord
Guard my heart from sinfulness
Enrich me with your living Word.
Reminding me that this ain’t home
That my home is with you.
*****

  1. O that my concern will not be what identity men give to me but on my God-given identity and that I may lose grip on the things of this world as I turn my face upon Him and get hold of that which Christ has held up for me.
