Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Looking at Grace
The thought occurred to me
This may help others to see
Word pictures are a great tool
For learning, as when in school

View your whole life as a race
Survival takes courage and grace
Athletes will train for a long time
Before they reach the finish line

Leaving God out will result in failure
You are living for your own pleasure
A day will come and may not be long
You will wonder what went wrong.

Use the letter g to represent God
Put Him first in the race you trod
God and race, what does it spell?
Grace and your life will end well

You can receive this grace so free
Jesus paid for your sins on the tree
Grace is His favor He shows to you
Not based on anything you can do

When you come to the foot of the cross
Realizing that without Him you are lost
By your faith, He will enter into your life
Wiping away all of your sins and strife

Ephesians 2:8-9 (AMP)
For it is by free grace (God's unmerited favor) that you are
saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ's
salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of
yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own
striving], but it is the gift of God; 9 Not because of works
[not the fulfillment of the Law's demands], lest any man should
boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so
no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.]
