I heard of this thing called Grace
and everyone is talking about it.
They even have a song about it,
have you heard it Amazing Grace?
I long to get some of it but I’m being selfish
you have given me a taste.
But Father O God is it wrong to ask for a buffett?
You speak about greed and that’s a trait we shouldn’t have
but if you look in my heart
You are a mate I couldn’t have.
It wasn’t your choice but mines
because I wanted to act a fool
and push you behind.
I always knew there would come a time
when you would turn my head
It’s like that forbidden love that one’s heart
could never shed
But there is a difference!
You are giving it freely well,
What is the problem?
What can’t I see?
I say I surrender, all praises go to you, you have spared me,
shown mercy, delivered me, and
yet you still aren’t through
Lord what do you want me to do? Tell me and I will
Remove me from situations not to be tempted
so I can hear only from you
I am begging for relationship like I have done so many times in this fleshly world
You said you were different and I can experience true love through you and your word
Well God you made me so you know what it takes to make nothing not shake me
I want you to wrap me in your arms and never let go
and I vow that in return I will share your goodness bringing more to the Kingdom letting all your righteousness show
Use me God as an example let me be the pawn, elevate me to the Queen with elegance and brawn.
You are magnificent my God thank you for showing your face.
Showing mercy on me.
now God where’s that Grace?
Hold on to me Daughter
Hold on to me God
Please don’t let go
It’s not that I don’t believe
but it’s like I have ADD
darting to and fro
Although it’s all things that glorify,
represent, and exalt your name
I don’t want to be a fan,
follower, or cheerleader
Most importantly I’m scared to bring you
I hear the murmurs now,
“Is she serious?”
“Why is she going to the extreme?”
“Just six months ago she was in the club
drinking, smoking, and crying over Kareem”
I’m hoping and can only imagine God’s response:
“Daughter you are right, six months ago that was you
but I wiped that filth off
you and made you clean.”
“Whether six months, six days, six minutes
you still chose me.
Run faster my love and
I will continue to give you
Who cares what they say? Not I
and I am the King. You want
to talk well Precious I am listening.
Cry, scream, vent, mumble, or sing
whatever you want to communicate
baby girl I am listening.
It will be alright. It will get
Trusting and believing in me is not
an easy thing. I know you are strong tho.
I built you stronger than
Give yourself grace it took
a while for you to get here.
I know who you are,
where you are, and
it is not a scheme.You long for me like
I have longed for you.
Don’t worry about other people just
Hold on to Me!
