His Saving Grace

     A poem for those desperate souls who may need reassuring this Sunday morning, that He, is always with us. I just finished it and I’m hoping that all of you will like it as much as I do.

     No long Sunday sermon this week boys and girls,

His Saving Grace

 Standing on the precipice

he lifted up his eyes

asking for Divine Intervention

to save him, from demise.

But, no hand reached out to hold him

there were no angels at his sides.

But, thoughts of hope and family

within his mind did rise.


 Then he sat to contemplate

what had brought him to this place

when everywhere he chanced to look,

he could see God‘s face.

It was then he realized

that this life is not a waste

and that He had given him

his wished for, “Saving Grace.”
