“I can’t imagine what God sees in me.”
Has that thought ever crossed your mind? You’re in good company. Think about the opening verse of one of the most beloved hymn’s ever written:
“Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.”

That’s why it’s called Grace.
A friend of mine, Vern, died last year at the ripe old age of 95. He detested the use of the word ‘wretch’ in Amazing Grace, and refused to let it be played at his funeral. (No, he didn’t put that demand in his will, but everyone who knew Vern knew his feelings.)
