Grace Uncontained

Updated on September 12, 2011

I am simple but complicated

Smart, but not overly educated

Faith like a small child

But by the world, defiled

Expressions worn on my sleeve

My ideals harder to conceive

By the world anyway

And what the people say

It shouldn’t matter too much

That they say it is just a crutch

I say it is more like a rock

They no longer mock

Especially after seeing

Burdens always fleeing

Lifted way above

Instead, a dove

Ever present

Ever destined

Understand wisdom

Instead of a system

Read the book

You will be shook

Amazed at the grace

And your place

In the wonderful kingdom

No weight of the sin syndrome

Pulling you here and there

Struggling seems unfair

Peace will be obtained

Grace will be uncontained

      I really like this. I love the picture at the top as well. Being a Christian who is out there for all the world to see can be tough sometimes with so many who want nothing more than to discredit and marginalize us. But his grace helps us persevere. Very well written. Thanks.

      Hi Sky,

      I love your poem. Its soul-touching and I'm blessed reading it.Praise the Lord when everything else is devastating God's grace has sustained you and His peace abides within you, what else do we ask for? Above all you've understood God's wisdom.
