Writings of a Sinner

For all sin and fall short of the glory of God

Month: July, 2017

Saving graceĀ 

This is where I pray for forgiveness. 

This is where I break from the strain. 

This is where I call on your mercy. 

This is where I call on your name. 

I have stepped off the path with deliberate steps. 

Now I beg you to pull me back into your grasp. 

I am broken and rusty, but you give me the best. 

I am dirty and sick, but you wash my feet. 

Lord, We are tired and worn and we ache to be home. 

No words can say it right except yours. 

I won’t pretend to be worthy to even ask for a drop. 

But this is where I ask for forgiveness. 

This is where I pray for your saving grace.

Disappoint

You try, but it’s barely an effort. 

You push, but it’s barely a sway. 

You’re known for hard work, but you’re one step from lazy. 

You’re looking up, but you’re falling away. 

Don’t claim to be whole when you’re broken. 

I’d be surprised if they don’t already know. 

When you’re hoping to pleasantly surprise them,

Just remember that you’re bound to disappoint.
