Grace is when…
My dreams came crushing on me, my vision shuttered
My future seemed to be doomed, my family broken
My soul stripped and torn apart
‘I have lost it all,’ I thought.
My soul famished for something to satisfy it
And so I vanished into the worlds unknown
Pleasures I found, yet not satisfied
Addicted I became
And always yearned for more and never had enough of it all
Faith? Was a conviction I had let go of
I needed to see for me to believe, because all I could see is a blank-dark life
Then Jesus called me by name,
By my name He knows me.
He took my life into His hands
He then pointed me to the Cross
And behold I saw my whole sinful life on Him
As He bore it all with pain and shame, yet with full of grace
And He whispered “You my Child, you don’t have to suffer in your life just believe.”
“Call unto me when you are weary and heavy laden and I will give you Rest”
Smiling down at me He says “Just come the way you are, it was all finished on the cross.”
