I’m starting with a song that’s So Good…I’m soaking in it. I hope it will bless you too…and then there’s my poem 🙂
Slow to catch wisdom
Received more years than wished for
Learning how life works
My sins ever known by me
Pride can never boast nor judge
Another’s path, grace deserved
Blind, this stony heart
Lacked vision; deaf, would not hear
Living Words offered
Paid high cost of rebellion
Still recall exact moment
Day I chose to disobey
Were it not for Cross
Crimson rope, Mercy’s rescue
Pulling me to shore
Eternity waited empty
Bleak reward, apart from God
Grateful to 2nd-chance Lord
“Remember, O Lord, your compassion and unfailing love,
which you have shown from long ages past.
7 Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth.
Remember me in the light of your unfailing love,
for you are merciful, O Lord.
8 The Lord is good and does what is right;
he shows the proper path to those who go astray.
9 He leads the humble in doing right,
teaching them his way.”
Psalm 25:7-9, New Living Translation
