i asked my Lord for peace and right now storm winds are blowing thunder and lightning clash and rage in my presence i prayed for grace and hell hounds are beating down a ragged path just behind each footstep that i take i beseeched my God for mercy and my life is falling down... turned upside down even as i speak i begged for compassion and sat accused even though i was innocent i bargained for forgiveness but rarely found a person on this earth who could just forget i moaned for faith but it seemed that i could never see His face i cried out for His love and in an instant He brought things to my remembrance.... i am given peace to live my life even in the midst of a storm... He gives me His grace out of His love for me - i did nothing to deserve it His mercy for me has known no boundaries... the compassion He has shown me... do i give it to those in my life? & forgiveness...my Lord! i live in continual sin but He hears my prayers of repentance & forgives HE forgets each transgression against Him faith...freely given all i must do is believe and love love - He so loved. God is love. there is nothing else that i need... perfection in His name Amen.
