Poetry and Musings

Grace is reliable, strong and durable
When we allow it into our hearts?
This internal itch is curable
Grace like leather

Beauty, elegance, and favor
So tell me something Savior…
Why do you love us so?
It’s not for the things we need
It goes beyond any creed
Grace like leather

I tried doing it in my own strength
I tried rushing the process
I would go at great length
To get anything but grace like leather

Grace is blessing every situation
Offering an invitation for salvation
Without You, we wouldn’t know love
Because we wouldn’t even be alive
But with You, we bloom and thrive
Now I need this grace like leather
