Grace Defines Me

Fri, 08/14/2015 - 15:55 -- BN15

Church is where I was on Sundays 

But I wasn’t there to give God praise 

 

I was there because I had to be 

Not to worship the Man that died for me

 

I was always the good one

And people thought I was living for the Son

 

I had people at church and school fooled 

because I always followed the rules 

 

Then in 7th grade I felt alone

And life wouldn’t even through me a bone

 

Life wasn’t going fine

until July 12th 2009

 

That’s when Jesus became my Lord

But I had no idea what was inshore

 

For me He was willing to bleed

and it wasn’t long before I learned that He is all I need

 

So, me?

I am set free

 

I am a child of God

and to the world that may seem odd

 

but I am who I am by grace

and one day I’ll get to experience God’s loving embrace 

 
This poem is about: 
Me
