Yet By Grace

Iíve experienced a lot of grace, while on earth Iíve run my race,
This race on earth, we call life, while being led by Jesus Christ;
The Grace of God, so undeserved, yet by grace I have served,
The Eternal God and Creator, when by Grace, I met The Savior.

Godís Grace I had never known, while Truth I was never shown,
Bible Truths from God of Eternity, yet by Grace, He saved me;
It was God Who loved me first, while an unbeliever at my worst,
Deceived, lost and totally depraved, yet by Grace, I was saved.

After cleansing me of my sin, His Grace to me would just begin,
As I began this life brand new, Godís Grace did see me through;
Starting life on the narrow way, with God leading me day to day,
His Grace was apparent in my life, guided by the Spirit of Christ.

The grace God had granted to me, in a weary world set me free,
Freed from the anxieties of life, in a world thatís filled with strife,
And as I live my life day to day, His Grace given, is here to stay,
To quiet all that anxiety and fear, as lifeís troubles do draw near.

His Grace is there at every bend, being all sufficient with no end,
Especially in the darkest of time, surely dispersed by His design,
Grace that brings comfort and light, while in that darkest of night,
Along come trialís gloomy rays, yet His Grace comforts my days.

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)

Bob,

I come here simply to read your poetry.  Now I think I'll spend some time and read some more.

Thank you for sharing.

God's grace, so freely and sincerely offered, humbles us, who've sinned.  It's akin to His unconditional love for each individual.  Accepting it, makes us aware of sin's hurtfulness.

God bless!
