I Am Grace
Sin was first introduced to me young, when I saw the truth go right and I went left….my mom was grace.
I was told to finish my plate, the over-chewed liver didn’t taste so great; so I hid it under the lip of my now “clean slate”….my dad was grace.
I chased her down the hall, my lips puckered in awe; a gentle first kiss isn’t what the teacher saw….she was grace.
She was my friend, I enjoyed our time now and again for she made me feel wanted until she laughed again and again. My vow was broken, many tears were shed; that night I felt I wouldn’t see grace again….
Down and low, using sex as my new afterglow; it was the passing through the doors at the sycamore that grace made my heart sore….
Roller coasters, hills and hollers; my denial of the truth made our union a travesty that my sins blinded grace’s wonder.
I am grace has been whispered in the stillness of our voids.
I am grace has been shaken in our heads and shocked within our hearts.
I am grace has been here all along; waiting patiently until my lights finally come on.
Through all your fibs and lies, when you turn back to my eyes….I am grace.
Through all your poor decisions, bad judgements and simple mistakes….I am grace.
Through your broken vows, stolen purity and hollow covenants….I am grace.
Come to Me, all of you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest for….I am grace.
I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me for….I am grace.
Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation can separate you from My loving presence for….I am grace.
I am grace for the lost.
I am grace for the broken.
I am grace for the stubborn.
I am grace for the addict.
I am grace for the adulterous.
I am grace for the hypocrites.
I am grace for the deniers.
Am I yours?
