How do you picture grace or try to describe it?
I see grace like musical notes that play out in our lives as rich background sound to all our senses, bringing harmony and melody to our moments and a song of praise to our lips and hearts.
These grace notes are Holy whispers we need to train ourselves to listen and respond to.
We live, breathe and have our being in God’s grace.
We are enabled, equipped and encouraged by its anointing.
We have all the riches of God’s treasure store laid out for us by faith in Christ.
Where does one begin to suggest the source of all strength, the power, peace and purpose of knowing our Saviour?
As a weary M.E sufferer (who has very limited energy or inspiration today), I know I cannot do full justice to these things.
But I pray that my lowly offering here will still touch your heart with some small measure of mutuality, a flicker of recognition or understanding.
sunlight fronds filtering through the trees
with holy whispers calling on the breeze
suggestive of love, hope and laughter
kindled with knowledge of joy hereafter.
With friends to hold hands and heart
for whether we’re young or old
they are a rich part of common grace
goodness God gives and deploys
to be acknowledged and enjoyed.
And as we trust in the promise of Your word
believe and receive all we have heard,
as we behold Your face
seeing life through new eyes
with renewed and restored view
of delight and surprise in dealing
with the everyday, we become aware
of how it all comes back to You.
Everything looks better than we had thought
it could be as we have sought
to know and follow closely
being alert in seeing each and every day
is liberally laced
with Your love
revealing a fresh way of living
with help from within
and support from above.
For such is life when
You bring our senses alive.
All is gift
All is grace
All is Christ seen
within and around.
His love surrounds
enabling the freeing
that soils and despoils
Like many before it, this poem had a life of its own.
I began with marvelling at creation.
And veered off into marvelling at the Creator Himself.
Which is no surprise when He is the Source of all grace, all goodness and life itself.
