God’s amazing state of Grace
© by Shyron Shenko
Grace is not tangible
But Grace can be felt
It is God's mercy and His love
It is Divine forgiveness that we are dealt
It's not that we don't deserve God's Grace
It is not because we do
It is simply because Christ loves us
It is with Grace He Blesses me and you
Grace is an oasis
In a desert of despair
As long as we have faith
God’s amazing state of Grace is there
Grace is truth and it is real
When we are hurt and broken
No matter the reason for the way we feel
God’s amazing state of Grace is always there to heal
Grace is clemency
Grace is clemency
When our sins or pains are hard to bear
If we have the faith to ask forgiveness
God’s amazing state of Grace will be there
Have you seen the Grace of God?
After you have fallen on your face
When you have arisen
In God’s amazing state of Grace
I think of Grace as peace and love
Wrapped in tranquility
But it is so much more than that
At least it is to me
Where peace and harmony reign
There isn’t room for anger, hate or pain
With the blessings that we gain
With God’s amazing state of Grace
There’s no weed or other drug
That can take the place
Of the euphoric state
Of God’s amazing state of Grace
Only by faith we will have access
To God’s Amazing state of Grace

Cee, you are so right. Mercy and forgiveness are so important also because one must give these things in order to receive them.
Thank you for the post on Awesome HP and FB and your comments here.
Blessings dear friend

The message of this poem is so important and you promote the message so well. Mercy and forgiveness are so important also because one must give these things in order to receive them.
I hope you are staying warm. The daytime temps are good, but at night it really dips down below freezing. Blessings and hugs dear friend. Take care . ..

Those who are informed about the Bible to the extent of understanding grace I think often forget that as much as they need it themselves (ourselves) from God, so we need to offer it to those people around us as well as to ourselves. Strange how we can accept God's forgiveness yet not forgive ourselves at times.
God expects us to give freely to others what He has given us -- forgiveness and mercy. How much simpler life can be when we do this. Carrying grudges and resentment can take so much energy we have little left for things that really matter and these burdens, and they are burdens, can interfere with the pleasure we might normally experience with the things we love.
An excellent poem and I still hope to see a collection of these poems in a book one of these days. :) Hope your day is going well. Take care . . .

Au fait, thank you for the comment. I absolutely agree. Just when I was about to publish another hub, HP dropped my Hubber score again, guess I will not be publishing anytime soon. Maybe that is what HP wants is the Creative writers eviscerated at least that is how it seems to me.
Blessings my dear friend.

Surly grace is all there is between us and eternal damnation. Were it not for grace Heaven would end up with no earthy beings. It's pretty funny how some people think they're better than others when we must all seem like what one of my previous coworkers described as a "hot mess." She was describing a school bus she had just inspected and it needed a thorough cleaning with a toothbrush because it was so trashed. Sharing.
Take time to catch your breath every now and then, and stay well dear friend.

Au fait, forgive the delay in thanking you for this comment, Honey Bunny has been in ICU since Monday and in a regular room today. But I am back or at least close to it.
Thank you for the comments and for sharing.
Blessings and Hugs my dear friend.
C E Clark from North Texas on February 16, 2016:
Came back to share this excellent poem again. Hopefully many will read it and be inspired to share -- both the poem and the grace. :)
Hope you enjoyed this pretty weather day. Blessings and hugs once again. Take care . . .

Kathleen, thank you for the comments, and compliments.
That very often happens to me reading things and the chain that it leads to is amazing.
Sending you Blessings and hugs and grace.

Beautiful truths. Grace is amazing. I just finished a book that was supposed to be about human failings, but it ended up being about grace. Funny how that happens.
Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on November 01, 2015:
Au fait, thank you for your comments and sharing.
I do hope all is well with you.
Blessings and Hugs
C E Clark from North Texas on November 01, 2015:
We are all so fortunate to be offered grace. Mercy and forgiveness are what more is needed of and if we give it, perhaps we'll also get it in out time of need. I have seen very few people who subscribe to mercy or forgiveness of late. I wonder if they know they will be held to the same standard they hold others to?
Sharing of course. Hope all is well. Hugs . . .
Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on April 09, 2015:
Au fait, thank you as always for the comments, I appreciate them. And thank you for being my friend always. Sorry it has taken me so long to answer your comments.
Blessings and Hugs.

Now is a good time to think about and appreciate God's grace. The entire game changed once he conquered death and we should celebrate that everyday, not just tomorrow (once a year).
Hope you and John have a great Easter. Blessings to you both. Take care . .

Lovely heartfelt poetry here. Your words flow well.
Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on October 06, 2014:
Thank you Au fait, for your generous comment, and up-votes.
And like you said Grace is a gift from God. Grace is not a payment for good behavior, but a gift without condition, given with unconditional Love.
Blessings to you my dear friend

In fact the Bible teaches that not one of us deserves God's grace or forgiveness. We are all as dirty rags.
"Martin Luther said, “The most damnable and pernicious heresy that has ever plagued the mind of man is that somehow he can make himself good enough to deserve to live forever with an all-holy God.”
"Our salvation is not the result of any of our efforts, abilities, intelligent choices, personal characteristics, or acts of service we may perform. However, as believers, we are '“created in Christ Jesus for good works”'—to help and serve others. While there is nothing we can do to earn our salvation, God’s intention is that our salvation will result in acts of service. We are saved not merely for our own benefit but to serve Christ and build up the church (Ephesians 4:12). This reconciles the seeming conflict between faith and works. Our righteous acts do not produce salvation but are, in fact, evidence of our salvation," (James 1:22; 2:14–26).
"In the end, we must recognize that even our righteous acts come as a result of God within us, not of ourselves. On our own, our “righteousness” is simply self-righteousness, and vain, hypocritical religion produces nothing more than “filthy rags.”
Not one of us deserves God's grace or any other gift from Him. Those who believe they deserve God's grace are far more lost than anyone else.
The prophets, John the Baptiste, and even Jesus, were all stoned or sacrificed in some horrific way because they didn't preach what people wanted to hear. Instead they pointed out, sometimes not so nicely, the sins that people were continually committing.
Anyone who so much as looks down on another person for any reason is sinning, for no human is better than any other human in God's eyes. Vanity or pride in oneself for any reason, especially that which leads to a belief that one is somehow of better moral character, is a sin. Most people sin continually, in part because they do not even realize what they are doing is a sin. Looking down on people who are poor, or who are junkies or alcoholics or adulterers is a sin.
