GRACE for ME
Of all my memories.. lived and stored..
Your Grace to me… stands out dear Lord..
When I chose to sin.. and then not to follow..
You could have left me.. there in the wallow..
You pulled me from the blackest pit..
When I despaired .. and all but quit
You stood me up with .. Careful Son,
There’s more out there .. just like this one..
It’s good to know that You still love me..
When sin rears up and tries to shove me..
I’m jostled some ..but I’ll stand firm..
I know that makes the devil squirm..
There’s nothing he.. could offer me..
To separate .. Your love of me
I thank You for my time.. down here…
For Family.. Friends.. and things held dear
When my life here.. is ever done..
I’ll be with You.. and Your dear Son ..
My mind can’t know .. Your wonders there..
Or what great things.. You’ll let me share..
Of all the gifts.. You gave to me..
Above them all .. is knowing Thee

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen,who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?36 As it is written:
“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”
37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
