Poetry Break: ‘YOU ARE MY GRACE’

I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of Beauty.

~Edgar Allan Poe~


By Danielle Bernock

****

Source of all life you know my heart

You hear it singing as I write

Of how I long to do your will

And feel that satisfaction of your pleasure

Your Spirit whispers, your Word speaks and I make my choice

I choose you, I choose you

So I run full speed ahead to follow your voice

Expectation of joy, expectation of joy

Source of all love you know my heart

You hear it weeping as I write

You understand, you understand

That when I arrive at a place you call there

And unexpectedly find grief and despair

You are my Grace, you are my Grace

Almighty Agape, Everlasting Holiness

Incorruptible Righteousness, Undaunted Mercy

Faithful Intercessor, Graceful Redeemer

I thank you, I thank you

You are my Grace, you are my Grace

My Grace in the face of discouragement

My Grace in the face of pain

My Grace that teaches me how to breathe

When dreams turn to dust and the pain overwhelms

My Grace when your people disappoint

My Grace when I am just like them

My Grace to face what lies ahead

In the dark, where I cannot see

But you can, for you are Light

My Grace to respond to pat answers

My Grace to false accusations

My grace when I fail, My Grace when I prevail

My Grace to climb these mountains

Be they in life, or in my soul

You are my Grace, You are sufficient

You are my Grace, You are sufficient

I will come forth

Either walking or standing, Or you carrying me

I will come forth

For YOU are my Grace

I love writing about the raw, down-to-Earth, heartfelt realities of life. I love to write in a way that reaches into the human soul—to take the greatest pains and struggles in life, and make them a blessing to others. Fantasy is a wonderful, interesting thing—but real-life situations, feelings, fears, and dreams are an unexplored ocean of stories that need to be told." ~ ~Scott Biddulph~
