GRACE


[an acrostic]

Amazing does not span the depths of my captivation

Musing at the love God lavishes on His creation

Astounded by His lenience with hostile, defiant nations

Zestful mercy unseats His justice and their annihilation

Inviting all to dwell in unmerited compassion

Not desiring that any stray from vested devotion

God surrendered His Son, in innocence for our souls' redemption


Grace being the legacy of a cruel, corrupt crucifixion

Released Christ from mortal to divine inauguration

Allowing us to share in this eternal connection

Child to Christ, Christ to God and Spirit, four-fold affiliation  

Eternally sealed by this adoring, divine dispensation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2 Corinthians 12:9 [NKJV]

And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you,
for My strength is made perfect in weakness."
