Justifying Grace

I found myself standing in His presence

Looking at the face of heaven.

My path here was so unclear

Through events, relationships, joy and fear.

Finally aware, I took His lead

And walked through the door in front of me.

I became blameless, pardoned, exonerated

Of my actions and thoughts once jaded.

I decided to walk by faith; not by fear

Because Id accepted His invitation here.

Author's Notes:
This was an assignment given to me and my table-mates on my Walk to Emmaus in October. I wrote the poem and we presented it over the topic 'justifying grace'. There are three types of grace according to John Wesley - prevenient grace (God's free love regardless of how you interact with him, regardless of being a believer or non-believer); justifying grace (the act of accepting God's grace and entering into relationship with Him); and sanctifying grace (our relationship and response to Him thereafter).

I kept looking over this one because I thought I had already read it - Well I have obviously missed - out. Very Nice.

I no longer know which category I come under. He blessed me with His Holy Spirit but I turned my back on the church because of what I saw.
I believe HE sees us, yes, as the bible tells us, even the workings of our hearts. In this I take my comfort. I no longer need the approval of men when I have been given the approval of God.
Love to you and light in your darknes Dori.
It will not last long. Alison SW xxx

And isn't that a wonderful and freeing feeling? You've described it beautifully and clearly, Dori. Nice work. ML
