If Not For Grace

So far from Godís original plan, this world governed by fallen man,
It is indeed a discouraging place; what would we do without Grace?
Godís Grace which is provided to all, those redeemed from the fall,
When God provided real hope to us, through His Son, Christ Jesus.

This world is filled with such discord, run by those without our Lord,
Filling many with hatred and strife, as evilness affects all in this life,
In a world where right seems wrong, a world where we donít belong,
Believers simply cannot afford, to live one day apart from our Lord.

These ever increasing, darker times, create for many spiritual mines,
With many families falling apart, as young people, from God depart,
Seeing a love for God less and less, creating no peace but distress,
But, Godís Love that doesnít cease, grants parents abundant peace.

Sometimes we just canít understand, all of the evil plaguing our land,
Turning whatís wrong into right, and diminishing in hearts Godly light,
Affecting those closest to us, creating in them unbelief and mistrust,
For our God, who still reigns above, and sustains many by His Love.

As we, for God, run in lifeís race, itís not our strength, but His Grace,
That encourages our heavy heart, as God finishes, what He did start,
As The Lord Jesus will fully sustain, all believers in all trials and pain,
Through the Grace that God imparts, as needed to all trusting hearts.

(Copyright ©10/2009 Bob Gotti)

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)

What ABlessed Hope, Bob Gotti

Excellent! I love it!
Once again, this poem should be shouted from the rooftops.
There is no greater pleasure than to sing our creator's praises!!!
