Grace Taking Root

From John 1:16-17:  “From His fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.  The law indeed was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.”

Best and worst of times

God’s grace always chimes


Loving and caring

Promises bearing


God remains at hand

Faith and hope shall stand


Seeking empty hearts

Molding time’s restart


Life’s melody plays

Offer Him our praise


God’s grace taking root

Peace filling love’s flute


Gloom and doom appear

Allow Him to steer


God’s love shows He cares

Guiding day’s affairs


Hope’s beacon awaits

In His hands, our fate


Witness as His child

Life no longer wild


Forgiveness and love

Shared from God above


God’s grace shapes life’s frame

Praise His Holy name

From Lamentations 3:22-23:  “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

This poem is inspired from some past entries in my “Take-Aways” journal.  Each entry is based upon something read and studied in a morning devotional.

    • Jan, I appreciate your remarks. Your “favorite” adds an exclamation point!! Yes, this poem uses couplets (pairs of verses). When I first started writing poetry, I used this as my primary style. Now my poetry uses a variety of styles. Sometimes the couplets work well . . . almost like a statement, then a response. Keep thinking spring!
