God's Tender Grace - Poem by Lesa MRK

I had endless faith,
In the depths of my heart...
Always a prayer,
And forever a spark.

I would not have survived,
Without God's tender grace,
My only friend
In life's darkest place.

When my heart was empty,
And my soul was torn,
I prayed for an answer
And Hope was born.

God gave me comfort,
When no one else could....
God gave me understanding,
When no one else would...

The ones I loved
Had deserted me...
And the one I needed most
Had hurt me...
Alone I stood,
And broken...
But in God's tender grace,
Endless Hope was spoken.

Now as I am dangling
By the end of my rope....
So close to falling...
And desperate to cope,
I remember my sincere prayers,
Offered up during life's darkest hour.
For I was saved by God's dear grace;
Faith and Hope's eternal power.

    Oh, Lesa, that's brilliantly beautiful! I know very much the feeling of hopelessness, of being betrayed by those you thought loved you. But God is eternally faithful! A lovely reminder to trust in Him always. Thanks! (Report) Reply
