And come face to face with God’s grace.
Some days I wear a smile from ear to ear,
Since as far as my eyes can see, my path is clear.
But on other days, darkness closes in,
And I can’t even see what’s around the next bend.
But regardless of what I’m feeling on any given day,
God’s Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my way.
Still I must confess at times when I hear His voice,
I shut my ears and make my own selfish choice.
Yet, I know Jesus never gives up on me
Because when I turn around, I find His arms open wide continually.
The lesson I’m learning is as clear as day –
He’s always going to be there for me no matter where I stray.
So I’ve grown to find comfort in this place
Where I rest and come face to face with God’s grace.
You see, I’m the reader who daily inhales God’s life-giving Words
While He’s the “Breather” whose truth dispels all of life’s blurs.
So everyday when you look for me,
I’ll be drinking in His truth and being set free.
I’ve come to learn that in my weakness, He is strong –
That’s why being in His Word daily is where I belong.
And if you can nod your head to all I’ve said and say, “I agree.”
Then why not take a moment now from your busy day and join me?
We both know that the only way to make sense of life’s “rat race”
Is to read God’s Word everyday and come face to face with His all-sufficient grace.
