God's Grace for My Sin...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

God's Grace for My Sin... 
My Lord.  I have failed you
 so many times.
I feel like I'm in a dark room
 with closed blinds.
In all of my "accomplishments."
 I've no reason to "brag
Each time I sin... It brings
God's "penalty flag."
I've seen fellow believers
"fall in disgrace."
I can still remember
the look on their face.
I don't want to end up
as many often do.
Ending up in failure...
    In living for YOU.
I humbly confess and
repent of my sins.
It's only in YOU Jesus where
 true life begins!
All of the," broken pieces"
of my life...  I give.
And beg of your mercy and
willingness to forgive.
Thank you God!  For helping
 me to become.
A child of God..  Through
 Jesus your son.
Thank you Jesus!  For being
 here and loving me...
The chains are gone... 
I am set free!!!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
