Overwhelming Grace

I am overwhelmed by your grace, oh Lord

For your mercy consumes my soul with joy.

You have constantly been attendant to my cries

And you have heard my silent weeping in the night.

Although, errant are my ways from your righteousness

Even yet, thy favour present and sudden embrace me.

Amid all the cares of this great universe under your charge

You in mercy incline thine ear unto my pleas, and in the

Abundance of thy healing power with blessings surround

My being, despite myself and despite my sins.

You with your faithfulness, cease not to part the

Red seas of my life, and with thy angels land me safely

On the promised side, according to your time and will, in awe,

My mortal frames acknowledges thy wondrous supremacy

And that through all life, thou are more than sufficient unto me.

Rejoice oh my soul, for the Lord of all creation, has in

Faithful covenant, manifest yet again, His love for me.

Blessed be the name of my God, the Almighty Jehovah

Ever present, mighty and ever victorious on the battlefield.

All praise, glory and thanksgiving be yours, my King

Forever and through the ageless age of eternity.

Move On

Do not castigate yourself endlessly
Nor subject yourself to constant reproach, or
Incessantly scathing personal recrimination,
For, but imperfect is our life journey, and
Blemished certain trails we sometimes pursue.
Yet know ye, that even the stalwart and ramrod
Of disposition are indeed still malleable, but
Shielded with the distinction of determination
Resolve not to disintegrate under the scrutiny, and
Limelight of the flawed existence of mortality.
Rather, cloak thyself with clear and piercing insight
To acknowledge frailties and experiences therefrom.
Arm thyself with the refuge of wisdom, to ensure
That thy perspective is unveiled in assessment
Of the failings that attend within thine existence.
Dwell not on the limitations or infirmities of the mould
Nay, courage most ardently seek, sufficient grace to
Forgive thyself embrace, while nurturing steadfastly the
Peace that elevates the spirit and dissipates confusion,
And with the confidence of maturity acquired through
Lessons, advance beyond the stagnation of shortcomings
To forge onward with confidence and enduring hope.
