“Without Grace”

“Without Grace”

In God’s words, I seek truth and understanding
Man’s words have become like the Pharisees
Or the Baal of the old made new…
To satisfy itchy ears
Blindness has become the norm (2 Timothy 4:3)
The Covenant of the Blood
Has been ignored (Luke 22:20)

My thoughts here I place
Knowing some will turn away
Truthfulness spoke without grace…
Even though it hurts me to know
I have hurt you with sharp words of truth
I speak from the Book that holds
Everything with truthfulness in place

My heart breaks and sadness
Is held captive in its place…
Knowing you will not understand
My words spoke aloud
Twisted and tied with inability
To express how I feel inside
Honesty… spoken/written without grace

I’m tired of waiting so I’ve turn to God
For truth and understanding
He gives me what I need
Comfort, mercy, love, and teaching…
My patience I have impart
Until my words can be express from the heart
With gracefulness and understanding…

A knowing will come from the Son
And Father who holds my tongue…

Grace: Sometimes used as a verb meaning to add elegance and beauty to

I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. 2 Timothy 4:1-5

In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you. Luke 22:20
