But Christ has Never Been Sweeter

LORD,

My sin has never been more repulsive to my spiritual senses, but Christ has never been sweeter.

My strength has never more acutely felt like weakness, but Christ has never been sweeter.

My awareness of living in a fallen world has never seemed more real, but Christ has never been sweeter.

My lovelessness has never seemed more insurmountable, but Christ has never been sweeter.

My unrest has never felt more like fleshly striving, but Christ has never been sweeter.

My selfishness has never appeared more pervasive, but Christ has never been sweeter.

My weariness has never seemed more soul-gripping, but Christ has never been sweeter.

My inadequacy has never felt more crippling, but Christ has never been sweeter.

My anxiety has never been more obvious as unbelief, but Christ has never been sweeter.

My perseverance has never felt so thin, but Christ has never been sweeter.

Come, my sweet Lord Jesus.
