Romans 12 Project Vs. 3

Verse 3
For through the grace given to me I say to every man among you not to think more highly of himself then he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgement as God has allotted to each a measure of faith

An honest assessment
That's all

The tightrope 
Of honesty
Between the land of
Where we used to be
The land of our promise

Between guilt and shame
And pride and vanity
Is where 
Our honest assessment
Simply honest

We aren't what we 
Used to be
Nor are we where we
Should be
We are somewhere
In between

Fighting doubt
And guilt
And shame
And self-promotion
And blind ambition
And pride
Even in the name of the faith

Our measure
Is only our measure of

The work done 
In us
The work still left
To do

An honest assessment
Of what grace
Has done
Of what victories
Have been won
Of what work
Mercy has wrought

Our measure of faith
Will help us
An honest assessment
That's all

No higher
No lower
Than we really are
