Sometimes in the back of my mind I get caught up in the "if only". If only I were still young. If I were pretty, smarter, could write better or were a better writer. I would be happy then. The truth of the matter these things will not make us happy, content or satisfy us. Only the Love of Jesus will complete us.
God does not see us as we think we ought to be but He sees the finished work of Jesus in us. Righteous, Beautiful and lovely. He does not say if only you were better. He says you are mine and I love you just as you are.
