But For The Grace Of God


Were it not for the grace of God in my life, I would be a complete mess today.

I can never forget that. The beauty He turned from ashes.

And on top of that, I was blessed to be educated, sheltered, and have my family to care for me.

Things I don't take lightly when there are so many out there who cannot say the same.

Lord, help me to remember those who don't have You. Help me to remember that there is something bigger than just me. Help me to be a conduit of Your love. Delivering hope to the desperate. Bringing joy in the midst of pain. And help me, Father, to remember my brothers and sisters who do not have the freedom and the rights that I do. The ones who sacrifice all that they have for You. Your servants and messengers of Light.
