Just stumbled onto this poem as a review of the past year was being made, realizing that it is not just a few months old, but over a YEAR old. She had posted it as a note to my Facebook account with a couple of tags, but it simply must have not registered on my radar as being there. She had pondered them all week from a sermon that Dr. Randy Cox preached on the first Sunday in September concerning the subject of Mercy. She wrote down with the note the following words:
Sunday morning Service when Dr. Cox preached, he was preaching on the subject of mercy. Got the words stuck in my head and knew I had to write them down. This is probably the greatest thing God has ever given me. I’m not the greatest poet, but sometimes I get the inspiration to write something. I really enjoy writing bits and pieces of poetry…… whether it’s comedic or serious…… it’s a gift… and if you know me I use it tot he fullest extent!!!!!
Oh, if only I had realized it at her age… Sure do have to admit though, it is wonderful to witness it in her…
Nothing I Could Do
(Speaking of Mercy)
Nothing I could do to save myself,
But He saved me and everyone else…
Nothing I could do to set myself free,
By the grace of God Jesus saved me!
Nothing I could do but live in sin,
But Jesus came and gave me life again!
