I loathe myself beyond expression

(Gleanings from the Inner Life of Ruth Bryan)

I feel a vile, unworthy, unholy being. I loathe
myself beyond expression.
But the blood
and righteousness of Jehovah-Jesus is my
confidence, and here I have a place of refuge.

"What a wretched man I am!" Romans 7:24

"Christ died for the ungodly." Romans 5:6

"My salvation and glory depend on God; my
strong rock, my refuge, is in God." Psalm 62:7
