By The Grace Of God

By The Grace Of God short poem

Photo by jemasmith

I thank you Lord for being in your hands, I thank you Lord for being part of your plan.
I am on my own but I am not alone because it’s by your Grace that I can keep my pace.
I know you love me Lord even when things are hard and I know you are by my side and you will always be my guide.

When I don’t know what to do , I know I can always trust in you. Because it’s by your Grace that my life’s no longer a waste. Even when I was strung out on alcohol and drugs you still showed me love, when I felt like the whole world had put me down, you brought me back around, you took away my fears and wiped away my tears.

Now I have the strength to go on and finish the race, for you have taken my case, I feel your wonderful embrace and it’s by your Heavenly Grace. Father, I pray, that one day I see you face to face, through my Lord Jesus Christ and by your Heavenly Grace.

Poet’s Note:
This poem is about me being hooked on drugs and alcohol and how I turned to the Lord. I am now alcohol and drug free.

I once was walking in the dark , I thought I was living the life. Thank goodness for Rehab. They started to set thing right, It was there I found The Lord and and saw the Light. Now these poems I started to see and hear. When they come in sight I write. Thank You LORD. Now all the other, the past is, how they put it. Just water under the bridge. GONE. Never to return. Now I am Just a laid back kind of guy, Who's about to spread his wings and fly away to a brighter day.
