Why do you think you must earn My love
By doing all you know to do?
My child, you didn't earn your salvation,
But didn't I still save you?
Why are you afraid of punishment,
For sins you shouldn't do?
My Son took that upon Himself,
So, I'll always forgive you.
Why do you think I won't be there
For every problem you go through?
I was there many times before...
Why would I stop now, from helping you?
Why do you want what others have,
And think you won't get blessed too?
Don't fix your eyes on gifts,
But on the Giver who will bless you.
Why do you not receive My love?
Because you've done things noone knew;
You judge yourself, and think I do the same,
Yet I'm so in love with you.
